Rich is very keen to jump straight into his new role, with the season now very much upon us.He has asked FC Lakeside to advertise training sessions starting immediately. Rich also has a coaching staff with him.

NEW PLAYERS ARE WELCOME, along with all our current player who finished at our U16 level last season. The first session will be this Wednesday (7th August) at 6:30 – 7:30pm. The venue will be confirmed on our main Facebook page as soon as we have it sorted, ASAP.
Rich has mentioned he’s more interested in immediate match practice and game awareness, more so than fitness.

Good luck Rich, welcome to FC Lakeside

Under 18’s Management/Coaching Vacancy

FC Lakeside are currently interviewing for coaching/management team to take on our Under 18’s team for next season.

Combine the two and we should have a very competitive side.

Our aim is to keep our players within FC Lakeside and ultimately give the players an opportunity to progress towards our men’s 1st’s and 2nd’s teams.
