BEECHWOOD REGENERATION REPORT 2018

In last year’s report, we mentioned two projects that were being planned by the Regeneration Committee. The first was the upgrade of the groundsman’s hut / club shop. We’re happy to say that this work has been fully completed with new steel shutters now securing the building.

 

The other project was looking at alternative facilities for matchday hospitality. This is taking a bit more time and the committee have considered a number of options very carefully. For various reasons, the upgrading of the portacabin mentioned last year has been ruled out. The current thinking of the committee is to look at a bigger scale project that will benefit the club on a number of fronts. We’ve approached an architect to draw up some options on developing underneath the Minerals Trust stand including the relocation of the dressing rooms. This would improve the players’ facilities, with the additional benefit of meeting the requirements for youth / girls’ teams. It would also free up space for sponsorship hospitality and it’s hoped that improving this area would generate more income for the club. This is at a very early stage and we will keep everyone updated through regular articles in the match programme.

 

Regardless of what option is selected, one requirement that will have to be met is the upgrade of the electricity supply at Beechwood. We’ve already decided to do this and we’ll be looking at completing this soon. It will ensure that when we do any more improvements to our facilities, this will not be something that needs to be revisited.

 

A lot of things being considered at the moment but it will take time. In the meantime, our thanks go to all fans for their continued support in everything we do.

Auchinleck Talbot Youth Academy Report 2018

 

Academy’s Development Award was secured in December 2017.A fantastic achievement and a credit to all our coaches, players, parents & officials who put so much effort & commitment into helping us gain the award.

Well done to all our teams who competed last season, success came our way with various cup and league winning performances from our teams.

A specialist Goalkeeping Coach has been added to the Academy setup this season, individual and group coaching session with our goalkeepers are now part of a regular coaching sessions. An addition that’s proving to be very popular and well attended.

Our new girls’ team is still in its infancy, but great progress has been made in securing female coaches with coaching sessions now well underway.

Playing & training facilities still continue to be a major headache for all our teams, little progress has been made on attempts to find a solution suitable for everyone, still in dialogue with East Ayrshire Council & Community Sports Hub over the Merlin & Auchinleck Academy playing Fields.

Several of our U19s have made it into the 1ST team squad for match days, a fantastic achievement, recognition, and just reward to the boys who were involved in coaching, warm up sessions & ultimately making their debut on match day.

Hopefully this is just the beginning of a long and successful partnership between the Academy & 1st team, in turn giving our youngsters the incentive to push on to the next level.

Thanks once again to all our coaches, players, parents, & helpers for their continued support, goes without saying without their effort & input we simply couldn’t exist or provide opportunities for our young people to play the game they love.
