Club statement: 21 June 2017

BRACKLEY TOWN  SAINTS  AND  JUNIOR SECTION

The club is pleased to announce various changes to both the Saints and the Junior section. With regards to the Saints, Gordon Kille will be the new manager and the Coach will be Ben Lovatt a fully qualified UEFA ‘B’ coach. Gary Courtney will assist with the goalkeeping Coaching. Gordon has been associated with the club for many years and will be responsible for pulling everything together to ensure the smooth running of the team. Ben has been newly appointed having  just moved back to the area and has a wealth of  coaching experience and is aware of the importance of linking the  Saints with the Junior section and to the first team.

All concerned with the team are looking forward to the exciting challenge ahead and to pre season training and matches.

With regards to the Junior Section we are making a number of minor changes which will become apparent as the new season commences.

We are eternally grateful to Nick Johnson (Head of Brackley Town FC Player Development Academy) who has now left the club.  Nick had a big hand in getting us to the present situation and developing the Academy to its current state. Taking over as Head of Brackley Town FC Player Development Academy will be Andy Thompson who has been with the club for a couple of years now and has a lot of Coaching knowledge and leadership at other clubs which he will bring to the fore. We have several new Coaches coming on board as we continue to grow the section.

There are exciting times ahead as we continue to improve both sections of the club and we welcome any new players who think they would like to join us as we still have vacancies for most teams. Please see the club website for contact details of age relevant teams and coaches.

Alternatively if your child is aged between 4 and 6  why not come down to the club on a Saturday and get a taste of football at our Soccer School. Sessions start at 9.30 cost £3.50 and run in line with term dates.
