We are pleased to inform that an application to enter an U23s team has been accepted for this coming season, with an update on the process below.
As part of the club’s plans to rebuild all of its footballing infrastructure including pathways through from grassroots football to senior men’s and women’s football, we are progressing a men’s U23 team for this coming season.
The establishment of an U23 team is pivotal to our growth as a club over the next few seasons, and we have significant ambitions to progress our senior men’s and women’s teams up the National League System and Women’s pyramid respectively.
We have had an application accepted for the Lancashire Football League where several other Northern Premier League and North West Counties Football League clubs have U23 teams.
Fixtures are yet to be released but we are aware the season will run from 2nd September 2023 to 4th May 2024. Home games will typically be played weekday evenings on a 3G pitch at local venues, depending on availability.
The team will be a mixture of reserves, development players and possibly first team players returning from injury. The team will be fully under the responsibility of the football board and we are currently progressing the process for appointment of a manager for the U23 team.
There will be more developments to announce in the coming weeks and we are now opening the process towards appointing a manager of this team for next season. If you are interested, we would welcome CVs to be sent to email@example.com before Monday 7th August, 5pm.
Be #ShakersTogether, Be #PartOfIt, Be #BuryFC for 2023/24.
