Sports’ Reserves awarded promotion

by David Mackenzie, Reserves Manager

Next season Mickleover FC Reserves will play in the Central Midlands Football League Black Dragon Badges South Division that includes the likes of Pinxton, Swanick and will have local derbies against Holbrook Sports and St Michaels, Hilton Harriers and RBL! This is as a result from having the most points per game in the season just closed.

The reserves home games are played at the Don Amott Arena, Station Road (every alternate Saturday from the first team) and the team comprise of a combination of first-team squad players, academy players and players from the clubs junior pathway (U18’s etc).

The reserves are managed and run by Dave Mackenzie with Aaron Hayer as coach and secretary Fran Fuller.

The move up is great recognition for the lads but it is not without costs. Next season we will be paying for 3 officials for every game, hospitality for every home game plus extra cup games. What this means is we will have to raise an extra £2,000 some of which will come through an increased gate but what would be great would be a specific sponsor. For £1,000 the sponsor will get a board and access to all reserve games.

We are also looking for a kit person and a Physio’. If anyone is interested can they please e-mail
