Promise for the future for young team
11:16am Thursday 10th April 2014 in Sport
LADS Club player-boss Danny Moon has been thrilled with the contribution of his younger players this season.
After promotion to West Midlands League Division One at the end of last season, the first campaign at a higher level was always going to be a baptism of fire for the city club's players and coaches.
And their task has been made even tougher this season with a number of players out injured or leaving to move to other clubs.
This has seen a number of youth players thrown in at the deep end but player/manager Moon could not have been more proud of their efforts.
“I can’t ask anymore of my young players," he said.
"If you look at today’s squad, there were lads out there today of just 16 and the oldest was 21.
"It speaks volume for what we are trying to do that they can perform as well as they have done, not just today but all season.
"The future is looking good for us at the moment.”
Off the pitch, things are also looking up for the club with the new facilities finally coming into place.
Goalkeeper Steven Bell thinks that will improve the clubs fortunes in coming seasons.
“The club is going places now," said the keeper.
"We’ve got the new facilities going in which is something we’ve needed for a while.
That will make the club feel more professional and it will be a better environment for the players.
"We are also looking to get the pitch in a better state than it is now, so hopefully it will help us attract a few more experienced players to help bring our talented youngsters through in the years to come.”
