Steampigs aim to keep it in the family

Ingrow & WVA Craven League club is looking to get more people in the family way.
But there is nothing untoward about the request from Ingrow & Worth Valley.
They are merely looking for new managers for their first and second teams for next season, to join their “family” club.
The Steampigs are looking to restructure following the announcement of departure of both teams’ managers at the end of this season.
Due to relocation and work commitments, Kevin Marsh and Rye Bailey have confirmed they are unable to offer their services for the first team in Division Two next season, while, after managing the second team since their creation, Dave Harman has decided to step down from the Division Four side.

Jack of all trades: Secretary Sean Kelly is keen to get more help on the Steamers committee.

Club secretary Sean Kelly has his work cut out to replace the outgoing management but said: “Ingrow have the potential to build on an already trophy-laden six seasons since we were formed. Although there have been difficult times, we look forward to a bright future.”
Although it came as a shock that the managers were leaving, Kelly feels a change would be good in the club set-up.
“Change is necessary sometimes and we’re looking at hopefully having some outside interest in the roles.
“Last season we had 60 lads down for pre-season training and it was disappointing to have to turn some lads away as we’d left it too late to set up a third team.
“New management would bring a breath of fresh air to the club and hopefully work towards realising the club’s potential”.
There are some other opportunities available to join the Ingrow committee as Kelly feels more experience would benefit the club.
“Juggling being a player, secretary, treasurer and what feels like sometimes a club owner, I would also like to establish whether anyone out there would like to join the committee and assist with money keeping, accounting, fund raising etc – any interest is greatly
Stepping down: Reserve team manager Dave Harman.

The club also enjoys a thriving social scene.
