Team selection will be the sole responsibility of the Manager Andy Craig. The team will be decided at training on the Sunday prior to the next fixture. The team will be selected from those who attend the training. The manager will select what he considers to be the strongest eleven plus 3 subs for each fixture. If you are unavailable for training you may automatically rule yourself out for selection.Individual commitments (work, illness, holidays etc.) will be taken into consideration, though it will be the players responsibility to contact the manager in advance (0773 2277854) to clarify the reason for absence in all circumstances. Only registered members of the club can be selected. The Junior Club (Under 15) Manager is Peter Gilmore, and he will be handling all matters relating to the Junior Section at Bangor Ladies. More details are available by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone or texting Peter on 07714 028736. Click here to view the 2013 JUNIOR ACADEMY
This rule will apply for injuries and holidays, as soon as you return to training, you are then eligible for selection. Exceptions: less than 14 at training - selection will then be made on availability. Whilst the club will do what it can this season to try and give everyone football – hopefully numbers can be sustained - regular full training sessions will guarantee general improvement in individual performances, as well as being beneficial to the whole club and contributing to the overall success of the team this season. In short, just by regularly attending the training, so are actively contributing every week to the success of the club.
All Bangor home games will be played on a TUESDAY evening, and all are evening kick-offs. Away/cup games will be played on a night most suitable to the opponents (Usual mid-week).
Training is scheduled every Sunday afternoon, from 1.45 p.m. SHARP until 3.35 p.m. and at BLOOMFIELD ROAD until further notice, (Ground Closure) then training may switch to the Valentine/Bloomfield Playing Fields. All members are required to attend training. If you are not available, you should contact (text) the club manager at 0773 2277854, to explain your absence. While it is understandable that work, family commitments, etc., sometimes take preference to training etc., a member of the club who is regularly unavailable to train, might be considered as unavailable for selection. All instances will be considered as due the individual circumstances. Training for 2013 will re-commence February 3rd, 2013 - with a programme of coaching which will concentrate on three elements of the modern day footballer: Physical - cardio vascular conditioning; tactical - team formations, offsides, principles of attack and defence; and finally technique - skills, shielding, heading, passing etc. Training will generally proceed regardless of weather conditions. Should for any reason the senior training be called off, every member of the senior club will be informed by text no later than 12.30 p.m. on that Sunday. The Juniors will also be notified in adance.
