AFTER looking over their shoulders at the possible threat of relegation for much of last season, Teversal have finally found the winning formula.

Teversal set a new record points total for the club in the Northern Counties East League Division One following their emphatic 4-0 win away at Grimbsy Borough on 18th March.

But the ambitious club are determined to build on that landmark and go one stage further as they seek an eventual promotion to the Premier Division of the NCEL.

And according to club secretary Kev Newton, the improved results are a direct result of the Ashfield club’s new-found stability following the appointment of boss Jamie Hudson and his management team of Rob Orton, Kev Smith and Stephen Aspinall.

“In recent years we struggled a bit because we had a number of managers in a short space of time and it affected the club,” said Kev.

“Since appointing Jamie Hudson we have got our stability and identity back.

“As a football club we always look to improve on what we have done the season before.

“We have done that this year and we will look to do the same next year. Right now we just want to get as many points as we can for the rest of the season.

“Our ultimate aim is to get promoted to the next level and to be eligible for entry into the FA Cup.”

The club has also worked hard to develop the next generation of talent and hope the club’s youngsters will one day go on to grace the professional game. But if not then Teversal are set to benefit.

“Our aim is for the young players to go on to play professional football or, failing that, to stay with Teversal and help us progress,” added Kev.

“The U19 team and its development is a massive part of what Teversal Football Club is all about.

“We have been able to concentrate on developing local talent, which is an important part of what we are about, and progressing the club forward.

“We have got a good foundation at the club now right from the first team down to the reserves and the U19 team and are working hard to develop young players from the area.”

Off the field the club has made massive strides and were recently awarded the FA Charter Standard in recognition of their excellent work.

But Kev and his fellow club officials know the Carnarvon Street side have got a lot of hard work ahead if they are to achieve their ultimate aim.

Said Kev: “We need to improve our facilities to make our promotion aims possible and we are working very hard to do that as a club.

“We have an excellent team of hardworking and dedicated volunteers and we are working with the community to take the club forward.

“We need the public to get behind us, whether that is through the turnstyle to give us bigger gates, becoming a volunteer or simply a business backing us.

“We are happy to have anyone coming on board as a volunteer, whether they can only give us an hour a week on matchdays or whether they want to become much more involved than that.

“There are good times ahead at this club and we want the whole community to be a part of it.”
