A FOOTBALL club manager is calling on other Tarporley sports clubs to join forces and create an association.
Tarporley Victoria manager Mike Brereton spoke to Tarporley Parish Councillors at their meeting on Monday to inform them that the football club had been promoted into Division One in the Cheshire League.
He said: “I am passionate about football and about getting youngsters the 16 and 17 year olds, who are in sixth form out and playing football. All to often people give up after school but by encouraging these youngsters into the game and the club they are more likely to continue playing.”
He added that the main issue Tarporley Vics has is that they still don’t have a football pitch, or a base in the village.Cllr Richard Brierley told Mr Brereton: “More sports facilities is part of our parish plan and the council would support any effort to get them in the village.”
Cllr James Blackford said he would ask around the sports clubs in the village and encourage them to get involved.
