Gainsborough Trinity FC have announce the launch their Saturday Reserves team, in time for the start of the 2018/19 season in the Lincolnshire Football League.
The Reserves team will create even more opportunities for, amongst others, our U18s players, who have been playing successfully in the Lincolnshire Intermediate League for many years, and we are looking forward to developing these players to go into the Reserves team for the 2018/19 season and beyond. For more information regarding the U18s, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
The set-up is to be spearheaded by Trinity legend, Jimmy Snee.
Jimmy appeared for Gainsborough Trinity 213 times, netting an impressive 75 goals, and has been a regular at the Martin & Co Arena since hanging up his boots. He has also been working behind the scenes with club officials to provide a pathway for talented youngsters to the Gainsborough Trinity first team.
With games being played on Saturdays throughout the season, home games being played at the Martin & Co Arena and the set-up coming under the Gainsborough Trinity Football Club banner, the future looks bright for Gainsborough.
There will be a meeting on Thursday 12th April 2018, at 7pm in The Blues Club lounge, where all interested parties are invited to come down and make themselves known.
We are looking for players, coaches, physios, people to support in administration roles and fundraising; those with an interest in providing sponsorship, or anything else.
Anyone with an interest in developing the sporting provision of grassroots football in Gainsborough is welcome to attend, or get in touch with Jimmy on 07813 483 169, to find out more.
First team manager, Lee Sinnott, welcomes this development, outlining the benefit such a set-up will have in the long term…
“The Reserves set-up will give more players the opportunity to show their capabilities, whilst also giving me, as manager, the scope to utilise the reserve team for the benefit of the first team squad, for a multitude of reasons.”
Club Chairman, Richard Kane enthused…
“This is another step in rooting Gainsborough Trinity firmly at the heart of the community. As a born and bred Gainsborough man, nothing would make me prouder than seeing Gainsborough youngsters given a positive pathway through to the first team. Putting a Reserves team in place that will play throughout the season is the next step to achieving this, and builds on the fantastic work done by the Gainsborough Trinity Foundation and Pete Wallace with the under U18s & U21s.”
