After leading the pack at the start of the season a mid table finish might have been seen as a disappointment but I have a feeling it maybe looked back upon as a decisive and formative season.
David and I wasted no time in discussing what needed to be done and with only four of the first team remaining we obviously needed several players. A daunting task to many but David and I saw it as a great opportunity and
Farsley was truly a green field site. We were of one mind, to build a team which can mature in the coming years and that meant attracting youth with the blend of skill sets to create a well balanced team that will be capable
Over the course of the last few months involving daily discussions and numerous meetings we have managed to use all our contacts and persuasive powers to bring together what we see as a very formidable team. In truth we
have probably surprised ourselves, not only by who we have signed but also the enthusiasm with which they have joined and the buzz which is being created. Even players from other clubs are commenting about what we are
doing. I am personally really excited by this and hope to be fit for the start of the season.
Off the field there is further positive news with changes to the structure and in particular Ash agreeing to take up a supporting role.
I have been really pleased at the interest shown by our members, sponsors and supporters who have been in regular touch asking about developments and keen to be involved and lend a helping hand.
Further positive news is that we are pursuing state of the art net facilities which will help our longer term goal of producing home grown talent and continuing the Rams legacy.
Looking forward to getting started and seeing you all there - in the sunshine!
