The squad for the 2015/16 campaign has been announced.

Keith Bird and Jason Bourne have been working extremely hard since their appointments and we are delighted to announce that they have assembled a squad that they believe has both quality and desire worthy of the red shirt of TWFC. From the few training sessions that have been held it looks already as though there is a togetherness about the group. Additionally watching from the outside in the lads did appear to be having fun, not sure it was all fun for those training as the players were certainly worked hard.

Please note that the friendly against Lydd Town on Tuesday 14th July 2015 has now been postponed due to an unplayable surface.
