After a successful season 2016/17 where the club were successful on a number of playing fronts with two sides reaching the pinnacle of the Scottish Youth Cup final, a club record Regional Cup treble and other league titles and cups it would be hard to better that.
However 2017/18 for Syngenta Juveniles has continued at a pace with a new Executive Committee and club chairman at the helm. At a time when fund raising, putting teams on parks and generally keeping boys and girls in the games with competing distractions, the club have continued to grow and put in place the foundations for the future.
A new 25 year lease was secured at the end of 2017 with Little Kerse Leisure landlord and supporter of the club Stephen Barr. The lease gave the club access to best in class facilities in the Central Region with 35acres of land, 5 maintained grass parks and a newly laid FIFA1 standard 3G park that was laid before the winter started.
That alone allowed the Syngenta sides to continue at a pace during the bad weather when other clubs were less fortunate and games were being cancelled weekly.
However it doesn’t end there and with the second FIFA1 3G show pitch scheduled to be finished by the middle of May and four new changing room blocks arriving to supplement the existing facilities the club really have continued to build for the future. On Sunday 29th May, the club had the chance to visit and try out their new second astro.
The facilities have continued to attract new players, parents and indeed coaches to the club and the teams have continued with the charge for success. A number of their sides are again competing for silverware with the U19s in an unprecedented third Scottish Final and the U17s looking to defend their Regional Cup title in a June final to be played at Ochilview.
Our developmental sides have continued to grow with new age groups rapidly increasing at 2012 and 2011 age groups and some our younger squads competing in Holland and Spain this Easter.
With the launch of the inaugural Kelpies Cup festival in August, nearly already a sell out, the future continues to look bright and indeed orange for the seasons coming with club also agreeing to a new kit deal with Hummel through RJM Sports Ltd.
The club are continually on the look out for new players, coaches and sponsors so to find out more have a look at their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/
