“The Old Boys will prove a tough opposition”
David Faulkner - Academy Director
The Redditch United Football Academy has a very strong history of developing successful teams in recent seasons and this years cohort are hoping to add to this as they edge closer to League success in the coming weeks.
With the current side currently unbeaten, comparisons have been raised to the squad that won back-to-back titles in 2011 & 2012 and now Academy Director David Faulker is on the look out for the old squad to take on the current players at The Trico Stadium on May 12th Ko 7pm.
David Faulkner said “Hopefully this can be a great challenge for our current players to work towards at the end of the season and it would be a great time to give out trophies to the current squad should they go on to win the league title. The idea of getting some of the old players together came from some hype created on social media. It will certainly be a big challenge for the current group as many of the guys from a few years ago fill team-sheets across at variety of local non-league clubs. In addition players have benefited from the education programmes we offer an there are some very good success stories with many now in employment in areas such as teaching, physiotherapy and one is even a strength and conditioning coach at a Premier League Club. It will be good to get the players and staff back together and celebrate past and current successes.
If you are a player from the 2011 or 2012 squad please contact David Faulkner on firstname.lastname@example.org
