Under 21s team next season. Under 18s also hoping to continue.

We plan to contribute using the pledges scheme to fund this. Raised £1200 last season from 20 pledgers. Plan is to increase this to 50/60 to raise £3000, backed by more promotion. Budget for under 18s and 21s is £15000. Should be self funding and separate – no impact on first team budget. We would be one of several sponsors.Under 21 home games will be on Fridays at Victory Park. bar and food hut open. Looking for a home for under 18s.
This fits in with our community objectives.
Some first team players will be able to play for Under 21s.

Motion carried to divert pledge money to youth setup.

Complaint from the floor about our coverage in the Lancashire Evening Post. We have raised this with the paper and there is little more we can do.
