Open Trials For Dollybird Reserves

As in previous transfer windows, again this Winter we will be holding an OPEN TRAINING SESSION for our Reserves.

The aim this season is probably a little bit different from previous seasons with our New Reserves Manager Brian King looking to bring in good young players firstly to stabilise the reserves who compete in the MUFL Reserve Championship to ensure a good strong finish to the season and also to push up the table in preparation for next season.

It’s been a difficult season for the Reserves with the changes that took place and with Brian’s experience & drive the improvements will come as he assembles a squad which will improve results and also give young players the opportunity to play at a good level and give them the opportunity to push into the seniors squad over the coming years.

So if you are an unattached player looking to get back to football, coming back from a long term injury or looking a change from your current team for whatever reason you are more than welcome to come along to the session and have a chat with Brian.

If you have any questions please contact us through our website, facebook and twitter and we will get straight back to you. (all correspondence will be kept private)
