As another season comes to a close we already look forward for a new and exciting season ahead in the 2017/18 campaign.

As another fantastic season for the football club come to a close we look forward to another exciting season ahead.

From first team gaining Europa League qualification for second consecutive season, another five academy players signing for pro clubs (31 now in total), another four academy players making first team debuts (30 now in total), both our scholarship sides winning league titles and another 15 scholars set to progress to university or employment it has been another great season for the football club.

As always at the football club we look forward continuously and never back. We are looking at improving and progressing our academy program in a number of areas and look forward to an exciting and enjoyable 2017/18 campaign.
