Now onto the 2015-16 season, firstly there was substantial drainage work done to the playing surface during the summer, and we must thank Viridor Credits for their help in funding these works.
Onto the football, the 1st Team managed by Adam Castle finished in 4th Place in the Western League Premier Division, but not good enough to reach our goal of promotion.
The 2nd Team managed again by Neil Snell retained the South Devon League Premier Division title, and were beaten finalists in the Herald Cup. Our 3rd Team finished the season in the South Devon League Division One as runners-up, in what was manager Nigel Holmes last season in charge.
The club fielded it’s first Ladies team managed by Grant Fisher, in the Devon Women’s League Division One, and they didn’t drop a point when winning the league title, and they then added the League Cup, in what was a fantastic season for them.
Also during the season a lot of work was carried out at Homers Heath, including a new covered standing area, which incorporates two new turnstiles. The ground was fenced in, and an impressive outside toilet block was built. This work allowed the club to achieve a ‘D’ Ground Grade which is good enough for Southern League football.
As the 2016-17 season gets underway, we have three new senior managers in place, the 1st Team has Ellis Laight in charge, the 2nd Team Lee Chapman and Ben Robinson, and the 3rd Team Phil Bearne.
Our Ladies 1st Team have been promoted and will play in the South West Womens League managed by Grant Fisher, and another new side starts life, the Ladies Development team will play in the Devon Women’s League Premier Division, and they are managed by Alan Wyatt and Rob Hill.
The club continues to thrive both on and off the field of the play and this is due to the hard working ethics of all the volunteers within the club.
