FAIRFORD Town Football Club will not be entering a reserve team in the Uhlsport Hellenic Division Two West in 2017/18.
The club will now channel its efforts into the first team following promotion to the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division after a five-year absence.
It has been acknowledged that the subsequent step up in standard – both on off the field – will require all resources and additional focus from players, management, committee and volunteers. The club will restructure for the return to the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Division – with added fixtures and increased travel.
Following the end of the 2016/17 Division Two West campaign on Saturday 22nd April at Easington, the decision has been made at the earliest opportunity to enable players to seek new clubs for next season should they wish to do so. The club wishes to thank reserve team manager Andy Bright, the players and those who have helped run the reserves over recent seasons.
