Academy to be renamed Development Team

Academy to be renamed Development Team

Monday Jun 11, 2018

The Club can confirm that our Academy has for next season, been renamed the Development Team and has been accepted into the Central Midlands League Division One North East.

Our first team players can play in the fixtures to either give injured players a route back to the first team, or to give players fitness minutes.

This is also to ensure no players are sitting idle in the stands on any given match day.

The team will play at the Impact Arena on the alternative Saturdays to the first team and also midweek if required.

Admission prices for these fixtures will be declared at a later date.

Development Team Manager Jamie Brough:

“I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue with the development of these young, talented and hungry players. Since the formation of the academy two seasons ago we have continued to progress both individually and collectively, and now this next stage will see us take a further step towards having boys ready to represent the first team."

"When all said and done there is little point in us operating if we aren’t ready to step up when called upon. Preseason will start in the near future and both myself and Matt Carbon (assistant manager) will ensure we are in excellent condition come the start of the season."   

"Places remain available in the squad and anyone interested in being a part of us be it on the playing side or volunteering on a match day can contact me 07912 862597.”

Manager Billy Heath:

“This is an excellent avenue for us to utilise having our Development Team accepted into the Central Midlands League. It will bring great benefit to all involved, it will allow players to ease their way back from injury and give them game time and minutes to help their fitness.”

“It is hugely important for us to have our Development Team in place; Jamie will do a great job as he always has done. It will allow players coming back from injury to gain fitness and keep players fit with regular minutes during the season.”
