Alveston in plea for help

09/02 Updated: 16/02 12:35

FORWARD-thinking Alveston Football Club has issued an appeal for volunteers to come forward and help to secure a healthy long-term future.

Alveston FC is a community club consisting of a senior team plus several junior and youth teams which is looking for assistance in a variety of ways from helping secure vital sponsorship to making the tea.

At the moment, all the teams play at various pitches around the district but the long term aim is to bring all the teams back together at one ground with state of the art facilities.

Club officials believe that it is important to have a sense of community and to provide everyone with an opportunity to train and play at a long-established and well-respected club, with its roots dating back to 1924.

First team player manager Tom Coles is currently working alongside assistant manager and local legend Johnny O’Brien and the pair have developed a young talented squad of local based players.

Alveston are currently second in Stratford Alliance Aquaid Division One and have already won the Stratford Hospital Cup.

The first team is looking for another assistant manager/coach and a physio to work with them, particularly on match days, which are Saturdays, and training sessions which take place on a Tuesday night.

Off the pitch, the club is looking for administrative help and general support on match days. In return, volunteers will be warmly welcomed into a local, friendly club and get to watch all the football games.

Chairman Martin Beese said:“Our current pitch is at Bearley Sports and Social Club who have made us very welcome, there is a great clubhouse with sports on the television and always a friendly welcome.

“We are a local football club that has achieved so much in our past and we simply need more people to make our future just as fulfilling and enjoyable.”

If you would like more information or if you are interested in helping out in any capacity contact the club chairman Martin Beese on 07774 423641 or Tom Coles on 07581 174913.
