The club enjoyed a very successful 2016-17 season with the First Team finishing a very creditable third in what was a thrilling last few weeks between the top four clubs, and all other teams Reserves and A’s all the way through to the Youth sides achieving well in their various leagues and divisions.
During the close season period nothing has stood still and club and ground maintenance has continued apace, ensuring a venue fitting for the Romans. This maintenance has seen in recent months new pitch perimeter fencing, repainted club building and re-roofing of the dugouts – not to mention one of the best pitch surfaces in the whole of the Wight.
We now look forward to 2017-18 with great anticipation. Training starts first week in July, then the friendlies, then the season itself. New training facilities are also earmarked for 2017/18 – watch this space!
The reserve side who managed to finish 4th in Comb 1. A season that could have been much more fruitful, if a regular keeper could have been found…..instead of a different stand-in keeper….. most weeks!
All in all, a very good job done by Adam Connor, with one hand literally behind his back.
Former Brading Town goalkeeper Simon Moore, has been selected by his fellow professionals for the EFL Division 1 Team of the Year. Simon joined Sheffield United ( Div 1 ) this season from Cardiff City.
Simon was at Brading Town for several seasons as he rose through the ranks from junior keeper to the 1st team.
Everyone at Brading Town sends Simon their hearty congratulations and best wishes for next season in the Championship, after the Blades were promoted from League 1 as Champions.
