Development squad launched

By Callum Chadwick

New Development Squad placed in the Warrington League for the upcoming 17/18 season

Widnes Football Club are delighted to announce the formation of a new Development Squad for the 2017/18 season.

The team has successfully applied to join the Warrington League and have been placed in Division One for the upcoming season.

While the Warrington League is essentially an open age competition, the team will be made up of younger talent, providing a vital pathway and genuine opportunity for younger players – with the right talent and application – to progress from youth level to the First Team.

Current First Team Coach Nick Matthews has been appointed manager and the team will play their home games at Parklands from next season.

The new development squad will coincide with the launch of a junior set-up for the upcoming season.

This exciting development provides local youngsters with the chance to improve their game whilst creating a pathway from the youngest age groups right through to youth football and semi-professional levels.

Widnes is a hotbed of youth football and it has been an ambition of the Club to nurture talent with the view to developing our own future First Team players.
