Date Set For Pre-Season Training

Shrivenham Football Club will begin 2019-20 preseason training on Monday June 17 [2019], at our Watchfield Recreation Ground facility.

Full timings and details will be updated nearer the time, however with the off season now upon us, we have begun our search for players who are looking to join one of the Uhlsport Hellenic Premier Leagues leading clubs.

Speaking about the new season, club Chairman Matt Hirst said:  “Although the 2018-19 season has only just finished, we’re already preparing for the start of the new one and arranging our pre-season schedule.

“We’re actively searching for a new Development Team coach and it’s only natural that we’ll be looking to attract players of a good standard to our try-outs to help push the club on even further.

“Ultimately, our management will make all the decisions as to who they would like to sign and traditionally pre-season see’s players moving around clubs looking to impress, but with finishing fifth in the standings this season, I’d imagine our stock is going to be quite high.

“Gareth [Davies] has already said that he will be looking at bringing in one or two players to complement his side and as soon as he’s back from his summer holiday, he’ll likely begin that search, while our Development Team and U18s sides will also be on the hunt.

“The sides are all moving forwards and whoever we bring in to manage the Development side for 2019-20 will no doubt also be looking to complement his squad, make their mark and ultimately continue to improve on what we have achieved here at the club and our under 18's will be no different.”

Players wishing to attend our preseason try-outs are asked to contact club Chairman Matt Hirst on 07711 263 113, or email him at m.hirst@shrivenhamfc.co.uk, remembering to include your name, position and playing history to date.

Details will then be passed on to the relevant manager who will be in contact with further information.
