The boys at Almondsbury have a very important trip ahead of them when they go to face the opposition which they have never come up against before. Here is everything you need to know about Almondsbury UWE, and their chances of winning this match.
Almondsbury started a very innovative program recently. They were able to tie up with the University of the West of England (UWE) to engage some very promising amateur footballers in some top standard 11 a side football matches. Players at this club couldn’t have any better mentors than this, and with the amount of coaching skills and experience on offer, combined with David Hillier and Mel Davies, this ensures that Almondsbury is a tough opposition to say the least.
The partnership, along with the recent refurbishment of the football ground at Almondsbury, will only help in promoting the ethos of the club which includes: desire, stability, and sooner or later success.
Currently, Almondsbury plays in the first division of the Western League, and are enjoying their first taste of FA Cup football.
Almondsbury was started in 1969, and was called the Patchway North End at the time. In 1971, they changed their name to the Patchway Old Boys, and took a part in Bristol Suburban League. In 1989, they moved to call their home ground The Field, and changed their name to Almondsbury FC. In 2000-01, they won the Suburban League and got promoted to Gloucestershire County League. In 2004, they managed to win this league too, and got a promotion to Western Football League.
It should be a very exciting football match between the two, and there is no way the fans are going to get bored, even for a minute! All that’s left to see is which team will come out on top. We hope it’s Almondsbury!
