A SUCCESSFUL season has seen four Leamington Hibs teams crowned league champions and now the popular club are seeking to bring in new players, coaches and committee members.

Leamington Hibs were established 44 years ago and have created a long-standing football environment that players, parents anc coaches can trust.

The aim of the club is to develop footballers and provide them with a pathway through the age groups while also providing young people at all levels with a chance to play the sport.

Looking ahead to the 2016/17 season, Leamington Hibs are keen to attract new talent both off and on the field. New players are wanted and in turn parents as well as other volunteers are needed to support key roles across the club.

“We have over 200 players who represent the club on a weekly basis and we are keen to attract more players at all age groups,” said vice-chairman Graham Nicoll.

“We also have new players coming through from our Hibs Bibs Under-7s and have opportunities for new coaches to the game.

“Where someone has a passion for football and the desire to coach a team then the club will fund the training for them to get their FA Level 1 qualification.

“We have recently welcomed some new teams to Leamington Hibs who moved from other clubs and are always keen to speak to existing coaches who might be looking for a new home for their team.”

Off the pitch the club are looking to fill a wide range of roles ranging from assistant secretary to committee members which enable the club to continue promoting grassroots football across the town.

The 2016/17 campaign as seen the Leamington Hibs Under-14s, Under-15s, the men’s Saturday side and the men’s Sunday team were all crowned champions of their respective leagues to win promotion.
