Our boys face the long trip to Bristol on Saturday, to face an unknown prospect. Below is a little about our opposition:
Almondsbury FC entered an innovative programme last season which sees Almondsbury and the University of the West of the England come together to engage promising amateur footballers in high standard 11 a side football.
Players in the club could not have better mentors, with the considerable coaching skills and experience of UEFA A Licence holder Mel Davies and Arsenal ex-pro David Hillier to draw from.
We believe the partnership, together with our recent ground refurbishment at Almondsbury Sports and Social Centre, will promote our ethos of stability, desire and ultimately success.
Almondsbury UWE FC currently play in the Western League Div 1 and are entering the FA Cup Competition for the first time this season.
Almondsbury were formed in 1969 as Patchway North End. In 1971 the club changed its name to Patchway Old Boys and played in the Bristol Suburban League. In 1989 Almondsbury moved to its present home 'The Field' and became Almondsbury FC. In 2000-2001 Almondsbury won the Bristol Suburban League and gained promotion to the Gloucestershire County League. In 2004, they were crowned Champions of the Gloucestershire County league and gained promotion to the Western Football League.
