Cup-winning coach Graham Merrington is set to manager Fairford and Lechlade’s second Under 15s team in the 2018-2019 season.

Fresh from guiding his Under 18s to this season’s North Wilts Youth League Cup victory, Graham Merrington is forming a second U15s for the coming season, alongside Steve Dark’s current side. 

“Steve’s done a fantastic job with his side and it seemed to me that there were a lot of good players at the age group, probably too many for one side. With the Under 18s moving on into men’s football I was keen to stay involved with Fairford and Lechlade, so entering a second side seemed like a sensible way forward”

The team will be known as Fairford and Lechlade U15 Revenants, a name Graham feels is particularly apt. “The aim of the team is to get lads that might have gone away from football back playing again, or to welcome those that have never really gotten involved in league football. It should be good fun.”

Graham will be assisted by Marc Cornwell and Nigel Dodds. The team’s first get together is set for Tuesday 3rd of July at Horcott Road and interested parents/players can contact Graham via email.
