Axminster Town FC Youth Section Open Day

Axminster Town FC Youth Section Open Day


Life for Axminster Town, now well settled into their superb new Tiger Way home, simply could not be better.

The Tigers recently held a youth open day and once again, as soon as the gates to the new facility were opened the local community rolled in.

Over 200 people attended the day. Most were there to see the new facilities and gauge just what all the fuss was about and, to a man and woman, departed most impressed. What’s more a significant new number of junior players were signed up to play in Town teams in the coming season.

A real boost for the club was also the large number of people who showed an interest in taking a ground board at Tiger Way.

For anyone who missed the day but would like their children to play for one of the youth teams, or would like to get involved in anything related to the junior section then they can contact youth team secretary, Andy Hurford, on 07795 217160. For anyone wishing to become a club member or sponsor the club in anyway they can find out more by getting in touch with the Town commercial manager Vic Holland on 07508 723972.
