EVERY summer most youth football clubs will be looking out for a couple of recruits for the new season, but it’s not ever year that a club needs to find a whole new team of players.
Two Mile Ash find themselves in that position after losing their entire U15 squad to the Corby Town Academy.
Club secretary Arif Ahmed is happy to see the players move on and continue to develop, but he also wants to field an U15 side in the Milton Keynes and Border Counties League next season, and to do that, he needs to find new players – and quick.
“We are obviously very happy for the lads,” he said. “We have explained the pitfalls but many of them have serious aspirations and there is nothing wrong with that.
“TMA Sports FC is proud to be linked with such an achievement, we are all proud of the players and recognise that this is all due to the quality training and development governed and administered by our development co-ordinator, Andy Brown.
“This leaves an enormous void for the club, and to recruit an entire team before the season starts is another challenge.”
Two Mile Ash were preparing for one of the biggest seasons in the club’s history, with seven teams between U8s and U15s registered to play in the MK Border and Counties leagues and MK District Development leagues.
With league fees and kits for the upcoming season already paid for, Two Mile Ash are keen to get a new squad of U15s through the door ready for the start of the new season, but they only have about a week to sign them up.
Arif added: “We would love to celebrate what’s happened here for the players and for the club, and in return, we hope we can attract more players for whom we have a full kit ready to wear.”
