Appointment of Brantham Athletic first team manager  and his team.
Brantham Athletic football club have appointed well known Paul Skingley as first team manager replacing Paul Abrahams.
Paul has confirmed his  non-playing team for the remainder of the season and they all have been involved with Brantham over the years. 
Paul's first game is on Saturday 31st January when Brantham Athletic face Diss Town at Brantham Leisure Centre.
In the match at Diss earlier in the season  Brantham were beaten and I am sure that new manager Paul Skingley and the team will be going flat out to make it a good home win and start for "Skins"
Paui has been with the club for a long time and I am sure he will do a great job for the team.
Other appointments  are- 
First team assistant manager- Colin Grogan-  making a  welcome return the club. Colin has been involved with the club for a long time before stepping down a season back and it is good to see him back and involved.
Aaron Hall has been appointed  as the First team coach and Aaron has been busy being involved in this side of things and I am sure he will do a top class job for Brantham.  Aaron also played for a fair while as a Brantham player so he will need no introduction to most of the players.
Tony Hall has been appointed as Director of Football and it is top class to see Tony back and being involved. Tony, an ex-professional footballer, was the man who several  seasons back took Brantham through the Suffolk and Ipswich League before making the step up to the next step up, the Thurlow Nunn League,which in those days it was still the Ridgeons league and Tony brings a wealth of experience with him.
Physio Katy and Coach Fergus ared staying with the club and we thank them for their support.

Needham Market FC in-conjunction with Brantham Athletic FC have unveiled exciting plans to expand the Club’s Academy in 2015.

The Elite Player Development Programme which was formed as recently as 2012 has quickly established a development pathway for its Scholars, attracting accolades and admiring glances from far and wide within both the professional and semi-professional game.

The Club have entered into partnership with Brantham Athletic Football Club of the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division, and in the Summer of 2015 an Academy will open it’s doors to those Scholars who will make up the first intake at the home of the Stour Valley based Club, a move that will see Needham Market who are currently setting the pace in Ryman League One North extend it’s Academy programme to two centres. Needham Market Club Chairman Keith Nunn said ‘’ The implementation of our Academy has, since its conception, been identified as key to the long term future of the Club, and in its short lifetime we have seen the many benefits it brings to an ambitious non league Football Club. We are very fortunate to have in place key stakeholders of such quality and experience, aligned to an infrastructure that enables the Academy and our Scholars to flourish”

The Bloomfields based outfit have made no secret of the fact that their first choice as a partner in this venture was always Brantham Athletic, and after a series of meetings between the two Clubs agreement was reached very quickly on a shared vision for the future. Commenting on the choice of partner which is crucial to the success of the opening of a second Academy, Needham Markets Chief Executive Graham Emmerson stated “ Once we identified the potential to extend our Elite Player Development Programme, it was crucial that we found the right partner to accompany us on that journey and I am delighted to be able to say that we have found exactly that in Brantham Athletic. They were our first choice for a number of reasons and this was born out in the meetings that took place between the two Clubs, where there was no difficulty in identifying significant benefits and common ground on both sides. At Needham Market we very much look forward to a long, sustainable and mutually beneficial partnership” Academy Head Coach Kevin Horlock will continue in his current role, whilst current Needham Market player and former Colchester Utd stalwart and Club Captain, Kemal Izzet will take up the rein’s at the Brantham Athletic centre. Further exciting news concerning an extension of the academic product which the Club currently operates alongside it’s Elite Development Programme will shortly be announced.

Darren Smith Chief Executive of Brantham Athletic comments “when we were approached by Needham Market we saw this as an excellent opportunity to align both clubs, who already have a strong bond with former players, managers and coaches. From our perspective this is a chance for the youth of Brantham and the Stour Valley area to join a successful and well run Academy where the benefits to them are first class. The club were delighted with the honesty and openness that both Graham and Andy showed us during our meetings and we at Brantham look forward to being a major partner in taking the Academy to the next level”. “The benefits to our club are obvious with a more definitive link between both clubs which now shows a playing family tree from the Ryman League through the Eastern Counties to the Border League”. “As well as the footballing side, we have an opportunity to showcase our young football coaches from ASM which will provide one of the many exit avenues for the students of the Academy. We are proud to be associated with one of the premier footballing academies in the area and look forward to a long and successful association”.

Further information will be out soon for an open day at Brantham Leisure Centre during the February half term – What this space.
