I write, as the Chairman elect of the Newly formed Audlem Football Club, to give you an update as to where we are in our planning .
Dan Morris — who you may recall as behind the bar at the Lord Combermere — a Vettel Look alike ! — is the driving force behind the team and has worked very hard in all aspects of setting up a team.
The team has 20 men ranging in age from 16 to 39. Training and coaching are very active as we prepare for the first league matches
We are affiliated to the F.A, we have a bank account and we have a kit sponsor and a ball sponsor from very supportive businesses in Audlem.
We are chasing the sleepy Cheshire East Council to help with regard to the state of the pitch. Lining , cutting , care etc.
Our games at home will be played on Sundays so will have no impact with the juniors footballers.
We need to generate more sponsorship and would welcome any such please.
Our first AGM will be held on the 5th July . At which we will confirm appointment of Chair, Managers, Coaches, Secretary, Treasurer etc.
We do hope the vibrant village will indeed give their support to this new jewel in the crown that is Audlem.
