After the final whistle was blown and Salisbury FC had secured a vital 3 points off the in-form Basingstoke Town in front of a bumper crowd of 1,383 at the Ray Mac, the first team invited members of the Salisbury FC Youth onto the pitch to do a lap of honour with them. A proud moment that was enjoyed by the parents/family members, coaches, first-team players and most importantly, the youngsters who were lucky enough to take part.

Salisbury FC Manager, Brian Dutton said,

I want to try and unite the football club as one, and Salisbury FC Youth is very important. The youth are the future and it was a great occasion to give them a taste of what it’s like in front of a record crowd of nearly 1,400 here today. I just thought it was really important for them to taste that. Our lads (the first team) are fantastic and they want to engage with the youngsters and make them feel part of it. It was really special for me.

Well done to all the young players plus the coaches that put in so many hours to run the teams. Also, the admin staff of the youth that plan and organise all that is required. Finally, thanks to the parents, guardians, grandparents, aunties, uncles, and friends that get the youngsters to training and matches. It takes a lot of effort from many people and it is appreciated.
