Looking to the Future at Beverley Town Football Club

Following a tough year for everyone, Beverley Town Football Club is looking forward to an exciting future of development and success.

Already looking ahead, Beverley Town Football Club’s Junior Academy currently has 30 children who are looking to form the next new Junior Teams. The club currently has 17 junior teams playing within Beverley.

The Club can offer football coaching from Under 8's all the way through to the open age group, the merger of Beverley Whitestar and Beverley Town a few years ago demonstrates the vision of the committee.

The club follows the sport for all initiatives and ensures the expanding Town has a local club to support the growth in population locally, health and wellbeing is at the heart of every decision.

The Academy is being managed and run by the previous first team manager Rich Jagger. Rich is keen to ensure that the Club develops and nurtures the youngest to get the most out of the game and encourage friendship and team spirit,
playing the games as it should be played, provides a natural feed upwards through the club to older teams, with the right standards set in place.

Beverley Town is an all inclusive Club and have developed a strong ladies section under the guidance of Arthur Jessop. The ladies team also has links with the local business community being sponsored by The Tiger Inn.

Beverley Town Ladies FC were formed in 2018 to give girls an opportunity to improve fitness, have a social get-together and enjoy the sport they love. The club continues to support the development of grassroots football within the ladies game.
Other positive developments for the club include success in the club’s disability team, which has been running for many years, and the men’s first team, which is hoping to go to Northern counties to compete. Mike Thompson joined the club as
Manager of the first team.

Mike was approached by the previous manager Rich Jagger, Mike was know to Rich through is involvement with the first team, Mike was a natural choice to take over from the good work that Rich and achieved, Mike has a great knowledge and
enthusiasm for the game, following a lengthy interview process it was clear that Mike would be the ideal candidate to take them forward.

Going into 2021, the club is excited about the development of Norwood, Olly Grantham and Rich Jagger are the driving force towards taking the team forward. Having spent a substantial sum on the pitch with the Ivan Usher stand opening and planning permission also being sought for floodlights at the ground to fit the last piece of the jigsaw. It is all credit to both Olly and Rich
how they have managed the projects and the responses have been very positive the future does look bright.

While new sponsors are continuously joining the club and contributing to the local community, which includes ex player Leon Dawson of Minster Carco who sponsors the 1st Team. Beverley Town are looking for even more sponsors to support the
team’s development in the future. At only £300 per year, local businesses could advertise at the side of the First team pitch to help support the club and raise their own profile as well. Known as a Win Win situation.

Mark Smith, Chairman of the club, said: “The club has a wonderful feel about it at the moment with some real momentum and desire to move forward. The possible development further of Norwood as a sporting hub in Beverley will only attract further sponsors”.

Despite a tough year all round, there are plenty of achievements to celebrate; Gary Proud has been the club secretary for 25 years, they now have a first team coach helping them play at the level they want to compete in, and thanks to the council, Deer Park Way has been marked out with pitches as the Leisure Centre is being developed.

The infrastructure largely built on the determination from Gary behind the scenes and his continued love for the club to see it through the good and bad times has ensured that Beverley Town have the foundations to build on.

Mark said: “There is so much good going on at the club, it is a real success story, a story that the residents of Beverley should be proud of and get behind.”

As the country comes out of lockdown and looks towards a brighter future, Beverley Town looks to support and promote Sport to encourage health, wellbeing and social interaction, engaging people to get involved. If you are interested in getting
involved, to be a part of the Community Club and push it's continued success then get in touch with the club, look to a healthy and brighter future for all.

Beverley Town FC is run by volunteers and without their help, the club could not exist. Special thanks also goes to Steve Graham who keeps everyone Covid Safe and Claire Willey who is the Covid Safe and welfare Officer looking after the junior
section of the club.
