Rusty - a ground in a nutshell.
At the moment we have 4 adult teams and 17 youth teams which include 3 girls teams, a fourth for sure next season, maybe a fifth. Talk of womenâ€™s football. And when fully fit enough adult players for 5 teams. So we really are a county set up waiting to happen, I believe, im sure many will disagree.
Our 4th team will be used solely for the youth players coming into adult football and will play there for a whole season to start.
We have been talking to the council for about 3 years, begged landowners and done everything we can to get some where to call home. We are still talking to the council and are very hopeful.
Our full aim for the future is to offer kids a chance to join at 5 and leave when ever they want, to give girls the same opportunity by getting womenâ€™s football off the ground, and we are working hard to offering football for the disabled. Just no where to go. As a club we want to be able to progress as far as we can. When we started Adult football back in 2001 we had a plan to be in the premier in 5 years, which we did. We then gave it two years to get into county 3, the way things are that could be another year !! and then start to look beyond county 1. it all comes down to facilities I think. I know many people will say we have ideas beyond us, but they said that when I said we will be in the premier league in five years, doing it the hard way from div 5.
