While it’s fantastic to see new players coming through, we sometimes have to say goodbye to others – we have to let you know that Phill Molyneux has retired after over 20 years in the game. Molly has been a wonderful servant to Buckley Town, representing us for over 10 years throughout multiple spells. He has achieved so much in the game and we can only hope those who follow in his footsteps can hit the heights and meet the standards set by Molly over the years. I would personally like to thank and congratulate Molly for all his efforts and wish him well for his next chapter – there will always be a warm welcome at The Globe for Molly, Michelle and their young Bucks. Chris Edwards, Chairman, BTFC
We were all sorry to hear that Molly had decided to retire; he’s had such a long association with our Club, and I have personally spent time with him in football since he first came to Buckley Town in 2009, as both a team-mate and more recently as a coach. He’s given his all for this Club across his numerous stints, both on and off the pitch, playing in numerous positions to the benefit of the team and often playing through injury. No player can commit to playing at this level over such a long period without the support of those around them, and I know that Molly’s mum and dad have been there supporting him every step of the way. And of course Michelle, and their two boys Kailan and Kobie have added to this support, and I’m sure it won’t be too long before Molly finds himself offering that same support to his two boys…we’ll have the # 9, 7 & 11 shirts ready & waiting!
Thank you, Phill.
