The Ressies Are Back!
Melbourn FC are delighted to announce more exciting news with the confirmation of the return of the Reserve team.
The Cambridgeshire FA have accepted our application, to confirm the return after several years as a single team club. Taking the reigns as the new Reserve team manager will be Gareth Crouch, who brings with him experience of managing near neighbours Barrington Reserves. Gareth had this to say on his appointment, "It's superb news the reserves have been accepted into the league. Training has been great and I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone, it looks like the squad will be strong. I can't wait to get the ball rolling!"
The excellent numbers and quality on display at training sessions should ensure both teams challenge in their respective divisions next season.
A message from Chairman Mick Walker - "We are very pleased to welcome Gareth 'Gaz' Crouch to Melbourn FC as our Reserve team manager and would like to thank him for choosing us. He will be working very closely with first team manager, Chay Wilson, to ensure we offer appropriate development for our squad members and local youth for the benefit of our club. We're looking forward to seeing the club continue to grow with Chay and Gaz in charge of on-field matters"
The Reserve team is also intended to be a platform for young players transitioning from youth football. Any players interested should contact the club secretary Simon Gascoyne (07732 613555).
