MALVERN Town heralded the 2019-2020 season at the HDanywhere Community Stadium as club officials, players and team coaches enjoyed an induction evening.

In an exciting time with the stadium redevelopment and installation of a 3G surface, it was a chance to share the vision for the future and outline the plan and structure in place.

There have been boardroom changes with Philip Earl joining as director of football, bringing a wealth of experience from director and medical roles within the sport.

Andrew Poole is media director and Shane Jackson adds his know-how to the merchandise and events side.

“From what I have seen so far the way that things are done here is extremely impressive,” said Earl.

“The set-up of the club is as good as any that I have been part of at higher levels.

“My role here is to show the way rather than interfere. We have three teams with one method and one ambition. I am the link between the managers and the boardroom.

“Since moving to live in the town I was keen to get involved with my local club and I join at what is a really exciting time.

“I firmly believe that enjoyment fuels success and success breeds enjoyment.

"We go into the new season determined to enjoy it and look forward to the challenges that lie ahead.”

Town's first team have moved to Hellenic League Division One West while the reserves stay in the Herefordshire League Premier Division with Richard Bray joining Pete Daffin to manage the team.

Chairman Chris Pinder spoke of his determination to see the club continue to make forward strides both on and off the pitch.
