BANWELL Football Club, in contrast to the 2007/08 season, had an average campaign last time around.

Challenging near the top at the start of the season the team fell away. With a few players injured long term, the team fielded six 16 year olds for the final game of the season. The reserves also had a poor season, narrowly avoiding relegation.

This season the management is looking to drive the club forward. With an abundance of talented young players, and a highly qualified club coach who currently works with Bristol City, Banwell can boast more than many clubs.

However, the club needs to be improved and it is therefore looking for committee members for the forthcoming season to help revamp the structure.
