Announcement - from Stuart Slater - Chair of Marlborough Youth Football Club
I am privileged to announce that MYFC now have, would you believe it, THREE HUNDRED registered players...!
Quite unbelievable. From 20-30 players in 2009, to where we are now. It has not been our mission to recruit higher and higher numbers for the sake of it, instead we have simply responded and tried to resource/accommodate the continuous stream of players who wish to play in mighty Orange! It tells me we must be doing something right.
A remarkable milestone, of which I am personally very proud indeed.
Again therefore, a THANK YOU to all coaches, helpers, sponsors, exec, the committee, everyone associated with the club, and especially the players! Here's to another great season ahead.... unbelievable!
(PS - we need volunteers now more than ever!)
Sunday 17 September
Marlborough Town Ladies FC 2; Trowbridge Town Ladies 3
Marlborough’s third game of the season saw them pitched against Trowbridge Town Ladies.
Trowbridge are a team full of speed, skill and slick passing that have proved to be testing foes on a number of occasions last season in both the league and cup games. But these tougher challenges always seem to bring out the best in the Marlborough Ladies and this Sunday was no exception.
A number of girls from the Angels section of MYFC, took part in Wiltshire County Trials over the summer, and this pays testament to the hard work that Becky Knox and John Whitehead have put into growing this group over the last year or so. MYFC is fast becoming a magnet for aspiring girl footballers from Marlborough and the surrounding areas, with players now travelling from as far away as Swindon, to participate in the sessions and matches.
The annual season opener Friendly contest between MYFC and Pewsey took place on Saturday 2nd September, in glorious sunshine
