ASSISTANT managers Leigh Powell and Jason Hancox have provided a glowing update on Fairfield Villa’s progress, in the lead-up to the forthcoming Post-Covid Lockdown Charity Cup.

The Swans kick off their participation in the friendly tournament this weekend against Coventry Alvis, and have been stepping up their preparations day by day as a return to the pitch nears ever closer.

With a few training sessions now under the belt of the Fairfield squad, the backroom duo have been enthused by what they have seen so far at the Midland League Division Two club.

“We had a very productive meeting prior to the return of training,” said Powell. The new management trio got together, and we discussed our thoughts for the upcoming season.

“I’m just really pleased to be involved with a great local club, and I’m looking to see our partnership develop.”

Echoing those notions, Hancox, who has had previous spells at Fairfield, in addition to his time at Alcester Town, believes much more is to come from Villa’s current crop.

“It’s nice to be back at the club that I have followed for a while, and one that I feel comfortable at,” he said.

“There is a lot of work ahead, but things are certainly looking bright.”

Fairfield’s group for the Post-Lockdown Charity Cup, which is in aid of Prostate Cancer UK. also includes Alcester Town, Redditch Borough, Knowle, and Hampton.
