It’s official, we have started the football season and by the time of publication most of the Milton teams will have played competitive games.
We have a new Open Age Hellenic Development team that is competing in the Division 2 North. The Ladies Team had an excellent first year at Senior Level, runners up in their league and League Cup winners. We will also see an increase in our Youth teams with teams at U13, U14 and U15 all entered in local leagues. Through the summer the club coaches have been running the Milton mini kickers. The Saturday morning coaching sessions and summer soccer school have attracted good numbers of local children of all abilities. It has been so successful we have arranged for the activities to continue starting from 21st Sept. More information can be found at www.oxfordshiresportscoaching4all.co.uk or Contact Coach Kev on 07778114279.
We are grateful to have received a donation from MICE that has supported this particular activity.
The Club is also intending to upgrade the Main pitch with a new LED floodlighting system and new pitch side barriers and dugouts. We have been granted planning permission for new LED floodlights. We are hopeful our funding applications with the Football Foundation, 106 arrangements through the VOWH and Small Grants Awards through the Berks and Bucks FA will be approved in the very near future.
With huge potential to do more for local sport and the community our No 1 restricting factor is lack of help/volunteers. Those that are already helping in various roles are already heavily committed; with double the numbers we can indeed do twice as much. Therefore we would welcome anyone who would want to get involved at the club. In particular we are interested in employing paid Bar and Kitchen staff.
Finally a big thank you to all of our Club and Team Sponsors, our Volunteers and Committee members.
Anyone who is interested please contact Andy Burchette Chairman – 07845961276 for a chat!
You can keep up with Club and Team news for the new season via our Twitter Site and the Milton United FC Website.
We hope to see you at the ‘Heights’
