Fry's FC ready to aim for next goal
Published on: 07 Jun 2013
A football club celebrating promotion for two of its teams this season won’t be resting on its laurels, with sights set firmly on the Western League.
Fry Club FC had a hugely successful 2012/2013 season, with the 1st team winning the Brunel Shield and then securing promotion to the Somerset County League Premier Division, a return to the level the club was playing at in 2007/2008.
Fry’s Reserves finished in a healthy sixth place in the division below the 1st team, while the club’s B team gained promotion for the second season in a row.
Fry’s 1st team manager Rob Mallett said the highlight of the season was his team’s Premier Division promotion, an achievement everyone at the club had been working towards for a long time, he said.
“Since day one of becoming the 1st team manager I have felt the need to create a real club atmosphere,” said Rob. “What I mean by that is where everybody at the club from the 1st team players to people who work in the clubhouse itself really buy into what we are looking to do as a football club and really show their support.
“This has been the foundation for the success we’ve achieved this year, as a good club atmosphere automatically means a good team spirit. At whatever level you play at unless you have a team spirit you will not be successful.”
However, Rob said he felt playing in the Premier Division was the “minimum requirement” for a club the size of Fry’s and no one would be resting on their laurels. He said: “I now have ambitions at pushing this club, both on the pitch and off the pitch, towards Western League football.
“I am not saying that is going to be easy but that has to be where we aim for. With the new facilities that will hopefully be available to us in the not too distant future it’s a really exciting time to be involved with the club and I believe that this season has firmly laid the foundations for what we are looking to build here.”
The club is also looking to recruit a new manager for the Reserve and A teams. Anyone interested should contact Rob Mallett on 07725 138206. Find out more about Fry Club FC at www.pitchero.com/clubs/fry clubfc or follow them on Twitter @FrysFC.
