AFC Burnley launches new team

AFC Burnley launches new team

We are delighted to announce a new Saturday side which will take to the field in the upcoming season.

The new side have applied to join the Lancashire Amateur League next season, competing against a wide range of clubs from across Lancashire and North Cheshire, whilst also competing in County and League Cup competitions. It is the ambition of the club that in the years to come we will celebrate progression through the relevant leagues and establish ourselves as one of the most attractive amateur sides in the area.

As part of the groundwork for this new team, we will be welcoming interest from ambitious and committed local players who want to represent us at this level and be part of an exciting journey going forward. Also, we will soon be advertising for a new Management team who can take control of this side, express their own beliefs, playing styles and spearhead its direction.

We believe this to be an exciting development for the club as a whole and we look forward to uncovering the ups and downs of a new level of football across the next few years, we hope that local people will support our project and our vision and help us in any way you can.

Understandably we don’t have a start date for the new season due to the coronavirus pandemic, but this will be communicated in due course.

Sponsorship and partnership opportunities will be anmounced in due course and we welcome interest from anyone who may wish to volunteer in supporting the club in this new venture.
