HUCKNALL CLUBS JOIN FORCES – STATEMENT

Match Type: League
Man of the Match:
Home or Away: Home

Hucknall Town Football Club and local youth set up Hucknall Warriors Football Club are creating an association commencing this coming season. The two clubs will embark on creating a new relationship aimed at delivering an exciting future for football in the area.

Hucknall Town FC is a Charter Standard family friendly community football club established as Hucknall Colliery Welfare FC in 1943. The Club was renamed Hucknall Town FC in 1987 and rose up through the football pyramid. From 1999 to 2004 Hucknall Town F.C. played in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, winning the championship in the 2003-4 season.

Hucknall Warriors FC was formed in 2006 and is primarily a youth football club but also contains a senior team which will remain part of the Warriors set up providing a route for the youth players into Senior football.

Warriors have long been recognised as a well-respected football club attaining the stringent FA Charter Standard award in 2007 and maintaining it ever since. It currently has 5 teams across its network.

The two clubs will create a formal Association but due to the nature and legislation surrounding youth football, will maintain their separate management and identities working hand in hand to deliver benefits to both parties and will work to create a single entity over time.

Both clubs will benefit from a new ground and move to new facilities, planned for 2019.

Hucknall Warriors FC will play at both Town’s ground currently located on Watnall Road before the planned relocation and will also retain its pitches at Holgate to allow for future expansion.

The idea behind this association is to create a larger and stronger set up for the benefit of the local community where the youth element can be developed further and in time provide a feeder in to the Warriors Senior team and Town’s senior first team.

Both clubs have agreed to commence a 12-month trial which will explore potential long-term plans to make the association permanent with a further announcement on this being made during 2019. More details and a statement from both Chairman to follow soon.
