New League for BTFC Reserves
Robins Reserves will be members of the South Midlands Reserve League for the 2004-5 season. The Club is grateful for the hospitality of the UCLR clubs and the UCL administration over the years. However, the SML offers comparable football but requires far less travelling to matches.
We have enjoyed a very good 2003-4 Season in which Morellís first team achieved a treble, finishing as Runners-up in three competitions Ė the Berks & Bucks County Senior Trophy, the Buckingham Charity Cup and the United Counties League.
Whilst the teamís ability to make a higher grade was proven, the Clubís facilities have not been up to the standard required; an application for promotion to the Southern League was made, but was turned down for this reason.
The facilities at the ground need substantial new investment. A Development Plan has been approved by the clubs committee and plans to raise funds and agree drawings are in hand. However, this will take time to evolve which the Southern League was not prepared to wait for.
The playing surface is excellent, thanks to the award-winning efforts of Robin Taylor - who won the Berks & Bucks Groundsman of the Year Award - and his helpers Phillip Runnicles and Ray Adams. This, in itself, helps to attract players who enjoy playing on a good surface.
The club currently lacks the necessary financial resources and footballing depth to mount a successful challenge at the higher level. The introduction of Padbury-BTFC will eventually provide the necessary bridge for younger local players to contest first team places but this will also take time.
We are all disappointed at not achieving promotion. Morell, however, continues to be fully committed to the BTFC cause and whilst there may be some change in personnel, it will not affect his or the clubís commitment to the future development of the club.
Let us all look at the broader interests of the club and put this temporary short term setback behind us.
