New Under 19s Side To Compete In MJPL Midweek Floodlit League

Paget Rangers are pleased to announce that they will be entering a youth side into the new MJPL Under 19s Midweek Floodlit League for the 2019/20 season. The new Under 19s team will take their place in the MJPL Under 19s Midweek Floodlit Development league from next season and will play home matches at Coles Lane, home to Paget Rangers first team, who play in the Midland Football League.

The Bears are also delighted to announce the appointment of Seb Hamilton as Manager of the Club’s new Under 19s Development Squad. The appointment of Seb Hamilton sees the Bears continue their ongoing partnership with Seb’s Sporting Elite CIC, a company which specialises in providing high quality coaching and education through sport to children and young adults both inside and outside of school.

Paget Rangers Chairman Matthew Dainty said: ‘ I am delighted to confirm the appointment of Seb Hamilton as the manager of our new Under 19s Development Squad ahead of the 2019/20 MJPL Midweek Floodlit Under 19s league season. Seb’s vision, values and beliefs fit in perfectly with the philosophies of Paget Rangers Football Club. Seb has been very successful in the running of our Birmingham Communities League side, Paget Elite, this season and we all look forward to continuing this progress with our new Under 19s Development team. The Under 19s side has been set up to help develop our first team players of the future and I have no doubt that Seb and his coaching staff can help Paget Rangers to become one of the leading clubs for nurturing young talent in the North Birmingham area.’

Paget Rangers U19s Manager Seb Hamilton said: ‘Im delighted to be given the opportunity to manage Paget next season in the MJPL Under 19 Midweek Floodlit League. Managing the Paget Elite team this season has been amazing and helped me develop as a manager, so when the Chairman (Matthew Dainty) and myself spoke about managing the development team the answer was yes straight away. We know our first season is going to be difficult but we are looking forward to the challenge and testing ourselves against some very good well established clubs”

Information on trial dates and training sessions for the new team will be posted on the Paget Rangers website and on the Club’s Twitter account in due course.
