The old adage that ‘it is never boring at the Green’ certainly applied to the past week with two managers quitting, one team withdrawn, two new sponsorship deals agreed and a new manager appointed … other than that, it has been quiet!
Martyn Dalby will be taking up the role of U16s manager forthwith and it is now up to the boys to rally round and make a challenge for the EKYL title. Thanks are extended to Martin Wirt who is training the squad on Wednesdays [6pm start lads please to give Martin more chance of getting back from work]. Let’s have everybody at next Wednesday’s session please as we will very shortly have a friendly before the league campaign gets under way.
The withdrawal from Sunday senior football is painful but better to make a decision now than mess around the league and other clubs. The aim, of course, is to come back as soon as possible.
For younger readers btw, TWTWTW refers to a TV programme of yesteryear entitled ‘That Was The Week That Was’.
