The Club will be picking up gear once a week to save our supporters postage and packing. if you have purchased goods from Macron, Can you email jeadie1957@sky.com once you have placed an order with your details. I am trying to get some samples for sizing purposes, but supporters who already have our Puma merchandise need to go up 1 size on Macron gear. i.e. Puma medium is a Macron Large.

Club News

TWO SENIOR PLAYERS HAVE LEFT THE CLUB

We have some news to bring you this evening on a couple of our players.

Very sadly, Aaron Burns & Andy Langford have both left the club.


Burnsy leaves us to join Radcliffe Borough F.C.


Here are Tom Baker’s thoughts on the departures:

“Aaron hasn't been getting much game time of late & at the age he is now, he wants to play. Radcliffe came in for him; they are doing well so it was mutually agreed that it's best for Aaron to go. Aaron has been absolutely fantastic for Trafford & I wish him all the very best for the future”


We all echo those thoughts & everyone at the club add their very best wishes to Aaron for his future. We’re sure the supporters all agree to his status as #TraffordLegend 🔥🙌



On Langy’s departure, Tom Baker says:

“Langy has been a great player for the club & someone who has been important in the journey so far! We have a lot of players - & younger players - in that area of the pitch which has made it very competitive for places. Langy is someone that has my utmost respect and I wish him all the best”.


Again, we all feel the same & we all wish Andy the very best for his future. He is another fans’ favourite who will be missed at the club.

A MESSAGE FROM AARON BURNS

My time at Trafford FC has come to an end. Would like to thank staff, supporters and all the lads for making my time so enjoyable. Wish you all the best in the future a great club.

SQUAD UPDATE

Unfortunately Ally Brown and Lewis Nightingale have left the club. Also, Matty Bryan has left due to work commitments.  We wish them all well.


To counter this, Tom has bolstered his squad with five new signings.  Full back Joel Amado signs from Irlam FC along with forward Adam Farrell from Atherton Collieries and ex FC United of Manchester midfielder, Michael Jones.  Two players join us on dual registration, midfielder Mason Fawn from Altrincham and Salford City winger, Kamar Moncrieffe

PITCH OF THE YEAR SHORTIST ANNOUNCED

Official EVO-STIK Northern Premier League Pitch Partner, GreenFields are delighted to announce the nine finalists for this year's Pitch of the Year Awards.

The shortlisted nine clubs have been selected by their fellow clubs via an online vote, launched mid February. This year's survey saw nominations from over 90% of member clubs, a 10% increase on the votes from 2018.

The finalists in each division are:

PREMIER

Bamber Bridge FC

Nantwich Town FC

South Shields FC

EAST

Cleethorpes Town FC

Stamford AFC

Tadcaster Albion FC

WEST

Colwyn Bay FC

Kidsgrove Athletic FC

Trafford FC

GreenFields have now arranged pitch inspections at the nine shortlisted clubs which will take place 27-29 March.

The shortlisted pitches will be judged on the following criteria: clegg and moisture results, visibility of lines, overall grass coverage, quality of grass in goal mouth areas and overall surface stability.

The judges will also take time to interview each Groundsman on aspects such as fertiliser frequency and Summer renovation plans as well as taking into account the staff used for pitch maintenance, the maintenance equipment owned by the club, the weather on the day of the visit, the geographical location and weather implications, the average hours of pitch usage and the level of irrigation in place at the club.

GreenFields will document the visits by using a dedicated app and by taking a series of photos.

The three winners (one winner per division) will be announced at the League’s Annual End of Season Awards on 15 June in Blackpool and will be presented with a trophy along with a £500 voucher to redeem against maintenance materials or services from GreenFields.
