Tayport Football Club are thrilled to announce that Amateur football is returning to the club and the town. From the start of the 2021/22 season there will be an Amateur team in Tayport again in the form of Tayport FC Amateurs who will be competing in the RJM Sports Kingdom of Fife AFA Division 1. They will play and train at East Common, Tayport, and will play in the same colours as the Junior team. The Amateur team will be part of the club structure, meaning there will be opportunities for players to progress into the first team if they impress for the amateurs. Former English Semi Professional footballer Ryan Anderson, previously with West Allotment Celtic FC and Barnoldswick Town FC, will be player manager of the team.
On the announcement of Tayport FC Amateurs, Tayport Football Club Chairman David Baikie said, “I am delighted that there will be Amateur football back in the town once again. As a club we are committed to providing opportunities for our community. Having Amateur football back in the town will not only be an opportunity for local players to get involved but also will offer locals the opportunity to have a stroll down to the common, enjoy a game and offer support to local players.”
Tayport FC Amateurs are looking for individuals to get involved with the club. They are keen to recruit Committee members and coaching staff for the upcoming season. Player trials will begin on Saturday 3rd July at 1pm on East Common in Tayport. If you would like to find out more about Tayport FC Amateurs or would like to get involved, call Ryan Anderson on 07767043683.
After having many successful Amateur teams in years gone by, everyone associated with the club are delighted that we will once again have an Amateur team in Tayport.
