Volunteers from the first team, the Clipstone Colts youth team teers and committee members have worked hard during the lockdown period on ground improvement work.

And Hoole believes it is a great advertisement of a club heading in the right direction.

“There has been work going on at the ground and that has acted as a bit of a ‘spread the word’ advertisement for players,” he said.

“I have had players emailing me, messaging me and wanting to come down. I’ve not had to chase many, though I am after one or two as we all are.

“The club is a great advert and the hard work that everyone is doing at the club is making it a little easier to attract players, because they can see what we are trying to do here.”

And the Clipstone chief says the hunger to continue recent progress made by the EMCFL club will continue to shine through.

“How we finished the season last year was a precedent to how we are going to set up and our progression this year,” he added.

“Last year was tough, but enjoyable in changing the clubs ethics and ethos and understanding how I believe football should be played.

“The professionalism the committee and the club has shown has been unbelievable.

“The lads are chomping at the bit. We will be fit, prepared and ready to go and hopefully progress in the right direction.”
