Romulus FC manager Jason Lanns has high expectations for his side heading into the new campaign.
The Castle Vale based side have confirmed a number of pre-season fixtures ahead of the new campaign, starting with a trip to Boldmere Falcons on July 10th, and manager Jason Lanns has high expectations.
“Romulus are a very ambitious club, and we want to get back up to step four as quickly as possible,” Lanns said.
“I’m working with a forward thinking club, who are not happy to stand still.”
The Roms haven’t played a competitive fixture since October.
Lanns has had time to reflect and prepare ahead of a new campaign.
“For me there are good signs.” Added Lanns
“The ambition is to be competitive by trying to finish in a promotion spot, and to do well in the FA competitions and league cups.”
The Birmingham based side, who play in the Midland League Premier Division, had their last two seasons cut short due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
The FA announced in March new funds for grassroots football. A £14m fund opened in mid-March providing six-year grants for the quality of pitches at the grassroots level. The plan aims to improve over 5000 pitches by 2024.
Speaking on the FA website, chief executive Mark Bullingham said: “Grassroots football has a hugely positive impact by bringing communities together and improving the health of the nation. These new funds will provide crucial financial support to clubs and leagues, helping them to get the game we love up and running again.”
Jason Lanns insists the club are in a good financial state heading into the new season.
“The past two seasons have been tough for all non-league clubs,” said the Roms manager.
“It’s all about living with your means and having supportive sponsors.
“The financial state of The Roms is very good. The club is ran by the owner Richard (Evans), who is a very successful business man. He keeps everything in ship shape, so we’re always in a good place.”
