Chairman’s welcome to 2017-18 season
I’d like to welcome you all to a new football season with Bracknell Cavaliers FC and hope that you have an enjoyable time with our Club playing this fantastic game.
It has been a busy summer for the Club. We have been lucky enough to partner with a new sponsor, Radiatorsonline.com, who have provided us with a brand-new kit for the season. The new kit is being rolled out and you will hopefully soon all be wearing it with pride at all of your matches. We cannot thank our sponsor’s enough for funding this purchase and allowing us to keep our annual fees so competitive. Thank you just doesn’t seem enough.
Over the summer we have seen players and managers move on, whilst also seeing new players start their journey with Cavaliers. To those that have left we wish you all the very best wherever you choose to play football. For those that have joined us, we hope that this season will be the start of a long relationship with this Club which starts its 32nd season in grass roots football.
We would particularly like to welcome our three new U7’s teams that have been born out of our excellent Soccer School this season. To be ready for a new season in September takes a huge effort and well done to all involved.
Some of you will have noticed that over the summer Bracknell Cavaliers FC were awarded the Berks & Bucks FA Charter Standard Development Club of the Year Award for season 2016-17. This great achievement is purely down to our Players, Managers, Coaches and Committee Members who want to develop our Club in an ‘All Inclusive’ manner. Well done to everyone as this was a truly inclusive effort that was noticed and recognised by County FA.
We continue to develop with our inclusive team, who play in the ‘Berkshire, Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Inclusive League’ (BOBi) and, through a new partnership with Reading FC Community Trust, we hope to build on this outstanding group of young adult players to enable them to play football as part of our Club.
We’ve also launched a new club website to coincide with the new season and would like to welcome everyone to it. Please do treat it as your website and if you have feedback or a suggestion for a page or news article let us know. You can contact the web admin at firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, I wish you all the very best for the coming season whether you are just starting at U7’s or one of our seasoned Men’s players. I really hope that you continue to enjoy playing at our great Club.
Barrie Smith – Chairman
