IT HAS been a busy summer for Earlswood Town after the Midland League club appointed Andy Struthers as their new manager for the 2016/17 season.
Struthers is in the process of forming his management team and has already appointed Daniel Greaves and Mathew Breeze as his assistants.
Pre-season training is due to start in the next two weeks at Langley School in Kineton Green Road on Tuesdays and Thursdays (6.30pm start) and Saturdays (11am) with any new players invited to attend.
Earlswood’s first pre-season friendly will take place on July 2 away at Continental Star and there are five other away fixtures pencilled at at Smithswood Firs (July 9), Wednesfield (July 16), Boldmere Sports (July 20), AFA Solihull (July 23) and Redditch United reserves (July 30).
As the new season nears Struthers’ side will then play two further home friendlies against Chelmsley Town on August 2 and Tamworth four days later.
The club have been busy off the field too in recent months after announcing a new shirt sponsorship deal with Synergie Business Solutions who will be sponsoring both the club’s home and away kits for the 2016/17 season.
Facilities at Earlswood have also been improved too. New toilets have been installed in all dressing rooms and a new drainage system has been put in place.
