Academy Bulletin

End of season 2012/13

 

Dear all,

 

Firstly, I would personally like to thank you all for your continued support during another successful Academy year.  Your commitments to ensuring players attend training sessions as well as home and away academy matches have been fantastic.

We have also noticed an improved attendance to first team matches, both home and away, so once again thank you from all the players & management team.

The development of the parent representative meetings is also another huge move in the right direction and you can be assured that this will continue moving forward.
