2016/17 Pre Season Round Up

2016/17 Pre Season Round Up

With the season officially starting for Wilberfoss AFC this Saturday here is a round up for how the season preparations have gone. The club had to deal with the shock retirement of First Team Manager Brian Walker who was quickly replaced at the helm by Kieron O’Brien & Andrew Palfreyman. In addition the club obtained the services of Matty Wain, Tom Matthews, James Hunt, Jack Condren, Tony Wetherell and Jack Lockwood all adding depth to the squad.

Although results weren’t the objective the squad went unbeaten with some very encouraging performances which saw them lift the ‘Neil Green’ Cup for the fourth time in the clubs 99 year history. New signing Jack Lockwood put in some impressive performances along with exciting prospects Nathan Knowles and Sam McAllister.
