It’s only been four months since Jody Bolt and Adam Reid joined forces at Exmouth Amateurs, but the progress has been vast with many more plans afoot.
Chairman Adam Reid, who made the switch from Woodbury, said: “It has been a lot of hard work and there’s a lot more to come, however Ammies now have their objectives and their strategies in place, its just a case of carrying it through. The ideas keep coming and we have to reel ourselves in at times.”
Ammies currently have two men’s and two youth teams playing from Warrenview, whilst Exmouth United Under-16s also play their matches at the ground.
Ammies are hopeful of retaining the Girls under 15’s side for 2015-16 season and also the Boys under 13’s unit is going well and will hopefully continue.
One way Exmouth Ammies hope to evolve next year is by entering the new Premier League that is likely to be formed by the Devon and Exeter league next season. This would grant Ammies Step Seven status and that comes with various advantages. The main one would be that so long as Ammies met various criteria they could enter the FA Vase.
Ammies are looking to launch a third men’s team next season and also hope to run an Under-18s side whilst they are also looking at other options which includes a Veterans team to play on Sunday afternoons. Also there are plans for a men’s team in the Exeter Sunday League.
Reid says: “Warrenview has four changing rooms so the facilities are basically in place. We are looking at the options of building a shower block on the side of the existing building to pass all the criteria required for hosting multi game situations with boys, girls and men’s football simultaneously. Back in 2009, when Jody Bolt was last at the club they had four men’s teams playing every Saturday and we believe we may not be too far away from that once again.”
Ammies are also encouraging all players under the age of 18 to contact them in order to get the squad together for the Under 18’s team next season.
Ammies are looking at providing great new kits and facilities for these youngsters and they are urged to email chairman Adam Reid on firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
