Marauders Needs You!

Marauders are looking for dedicated persons who will volunteer to be the groundsmen/persons for St Mary’s Park (SMP). Due to the nature of SMP, there is a need to mark out the pitches/updates the lines on a weekly basis.

Danny Waywell, Manager of the Saints, has offered to do this in the interim, but will need support and help going forward. Any parents interested should contact the Marauders committee, see contacts, ASAP.

Marauders are currently recruiting managers…..

Marauders are currently recruiting managers to help the club to form new teams, both male and female.  In particular, there are no teams in the boys under 8s and under 15s age groups.

With regards to female football, Bury has been allocated a large amount of money to promote female football and as such we are also looking to recruit female managers in order to set up Marauders girls’ football teams.

Previous experience would be an advantage but isn’t essential, whereas a sense of fun and reasoning and a love of children most definitely is.  All managers will have to take their Level One, which includes First Aid and Child Welfare, and the club provides a 50% subsidy payment to help with this.

All applicants will undergo a full checking process, which will include a CRB check and an interview.

If you are interested, or would like further information, then please get in touch.

If you know anyone who might be interested then please feel free to pass on this information.

Happy Halloween
