AIRBUS UK Broughton are setting their sights high after it was revealed the club are set for massive investment both on and off the field.
After bringing down the curtain on what could be their most successful ever season in the Welsh Premier League, the ambitious Wingmakers will:
Spend £75,000 on a state-of-the- art-sprinkling and drainage system to improve the playing surface at The Airfield
Build a new 180-seater stand at their Broughton home
Improve the club’s existing training facilities
As the club aims to become firmly established in the top-flight of Welsh football, manager Craig Harrison has put pen to paper on a new one-year contract and he has convinced a number of his top players to stay.
Harrison said: “The lads have done fantastically well but I still think there’s a lot more to come.
“We have managed to keep the nucleus of the team together for next season. Gareth Sudlow, captain Mark Allen, Danny Desormeaux, Matty Woodward, Ryan Edwards and Matty Cook have all signed new contracts. There are four or five others that are getting a few things sorted but we are 99% there.
“The aim is to get the club into Europe. It would be a great story to have Airbus flying into Europe to play in Toulouse or Hamburg.”
The Wingmakers brought another season of top-flight football at the Airfield to the perfect end on Friday night in their final home game.
Their 5-0 drubbing of nine-man Technogroup Welshpool was the Broughton outfit’s biggest in their five-year tenure in the league.
Midfielder-turned-striker Mark Cadwallader (2), Tom Rowlands and Gary McConnell (2) gave the home fans plenty to cheer as a second-half super show sealed the points.
