UNDER-18 TRIALS WILL TAKE PLACE ON SATURDAY 6 JULY

AT THE CLUB, COMMENCING 11.00 a.m.

ALL PROSPECTIVE NEW PLAYERS ARE WELCOME TO COME ALONG

 I say this with a heavy heart and enormous thanks, I am sad to announce that Batts (Steve Battams) has made a tough decision in stepping down from his role as Assistant 1st Team Manager due to family and business reasons. Steve was the first person I called when I took the managers job, his commitment from day one has been outstanding and along with Ben and Pat has brought stability, professionalism and indeed success to our football team(s) and will be missed. Steve will be around in the short term assisting with pre-season preparations and be involved in matches if I am unavailable. In the longer term Steve will assist in scouting.

I have moved quickly to appoint Steve Scott as Assistant Manager who will also bring extensive knowledge of Non League football, some of you around the club will remember Steve as a former ATFC central midfielder and was in the same side when we achieved promotion from Ryman Division 3 to Ryman Division 2 back in 2001 under Dave Kent. Steve also assisted Nathan Wharf for a short period during Nathan`s managerial reign.

Welcome back to the club Steve!

With the already announced departure of Mick (Snowden), I have appointed Kelvin Poulter to take charge of the 2nd team, where we recognise the importance of developing players and specifically those making the transition from youth to senior football, with Kelvin`s major involvement and experience within the junior section and indeed management, I am confident that Kelvin will be a success working very closely with Leon Turner our youth manager.  Good Luck Kelvin!

I will provide further updates on 1st team squad announcements in due course.

Hope you are all enjoying the break and starting to gather your appetites for the season that lies ahead.

See you all soon.

Burge
