Offa Athletic FOLLOW US ONLINE TWITTER.COM/FOOTYFOCUSMAG Offa Athletic FOOTBALL CLUB Offa Athletic FC is a fine example of a club that plays an important role in their local community by providing people with somewhere to enjoy the game. They are based at the Gresford Colliery Club, Blue Bell Lane in Wrexham and currently compete in the Premier Division of the North East Wales Football League. They are led by Chairman Matthew Oddie who is supported by Committee Member Paul Lamb and the club is looking to progress under their guidance. After finishing in the top half of the league last year they will be looking to push on this time around and challenge for honours. So far this season the team has been in fantastic form, having put together a record of six wins, three draws and just one defeat from their ten matches. This has left them sitting in the top half of the table with twenty one points on the board and within striking distance of the top sides. This should provide them with a perfect platform from which to go on and put together a successful campaign. As long as they can retain their current group of players and can perhaps make one or two quality additions they should be in with a good chance of mounting a serious title challenge. One of the highlights of the team’s performances so far this season has been the attacking brand of football that they have been able to produce. This has been reflected by the fact that they have found the back of the net 47 times in the league alone at a rate of more than four per game. This will certainly have meant that any supporters attending their matches will have been well entertained and this should encourage more of the local community to get behind the side in the future. This in turn has the potential to provide them with a valuable source of additional revenue which is particularly important in the current financial climate. There is much to admire about the fine set up that Offa Athletic currently has in place and this is thanks to the hard work that goes into making the club a success. If they continue in the same manner then they should be able to look forward to a bright and successful future for many years to come. Everyone at Football Focus Magazine would like to take this opportunity to wish them the best of luck. DRB Electrics We cover all aspects of work, no job too small.
