WAKEBURY FOOTBALL CLUB has laid solid foundations for the future with the announcement of a new youth set-up.
Several junior teams will play under the Wakebury Youth banner, with the ambitious outfit looking to build further ahead of the 2020/21 season.
Wakebury currently has senior teams competing in the ProKit UK Essex Olympian League as well as the Southend Borough & District Football Combination. First team manager and club Chairman, Matt Cardy, told Yellow Sport; “It’s fantastic to have this ready for next season. Young people make a football club so it will be brilliant to see the young players coming over wearing blue and white
“We are a small club but have a good, stable structure which has allowed us to make this obvious next step. We are keen to create a long-lasting football club and to do so, this was next on our agenda.
“We are still on the lookout for more volunteers to support us further with running the youth set up. There’s plenty of work to put in, but we are excited to get this going.”
