Football Focus Issue 75 - Page 47

St Day So far this season their first team has been in fantastic form and currently find themselves sitting on top of the league table. They have put together a record of twelve wins, two draws and two defeats from their sixteen league matches for a total of thirty eight points. This should provide them with the perfect platform from which to go on and have a successful campaign. As long as they are able to retain their current group of players and can perhaps make one or two quality additions they should be in with a good chance of taking the title. This is not a club to focus solely upon their senior section however and this is reflected by the fact that they also run a number of youth sides. These teams look to provide young players from the local area with an opportunity to play the game in a safe and enjoyable environment while helping them to reach their full potential. It is important for any club looking to be successful over a sustained period of time to be able to produce their own talent and this is an area they appear to have covered. It will certainly be exciting to see how their youngsters can progress. In order to help ensure that they enjoy a smooth transition into the senior game they also run additional sides. This allows them to gain experience of adult level football even if they are not yet considered ready for first team action which can be an important step in the development process. Another benefit of having extra sides is that it allows the first XI to benefit from far greater strength in depth. If they are ever left short on numbers through injury or suspension they have the option of calling up replacements with a limited amount of disruption. There is much to admire about the fine set up that St Day AFC currently has in place and this is being reflected in the results they are achieving on the field. If they continue in the same manner they should be able to look forward to a bright and successful future for many years to come. “We’ve been involved with the club for at least four years now; we provide a marquee and catering service every May Bank Holiday for their presentations at the end of the season.
