hl_image Club News Release - Verwood Club's Merge
Verwood Town FC and Rossgarth Youth FC are extremely pleased to announce they are merging into a single club called Verwood Town FC for the start of the 2017/2018 season.

Both clubs are steeped in history and based in Verwood. Rossgarth was founded over 50 years ago and is a youth club which has been providing football opportunities to players from 6 to 18. From humble beginnings Rossgarth has grown over years as the Town's population has significantly expanded; now offering football to local youth players with over 20 teams covering Bournemouth, Dorset and New Forest Leagues.

There have always been strong links between the two clubs on and off the pitch, with players progressing from Rossgarth Youth to Verwood Town FC. A recent example of the Verwood based clubs working together enabled them to raise £1000 for Julia's House charity.

Verwood Town FC now have 2 senior men's teams. The First Team play in the Sydenhams (Wessex) League and the Development Squad play in the Wyvern League. In addition to the men, the Verwood Town FC Ladies team will join the Hampshire League. It is with every effort and intention that Verwood Town FC will continue to build strong links with Verwood Girls FC to ensure there is a migration path for Girls playing youth football to aspire to join the Verwood Town Ladies.

Chairman Martin Gilham comments that: "We are delighted to have completed this merger. Whilst Verwood Town had a very challenging season last year, the bringing together of the Youth and Senior clubs can only benefit the local community and football clubs. Verwood Town's goal is to push forward both on and off the pitch, the club is keen to establish close ties with the local community to provide a family-friendly environment, which we hope residents and local businesses in Verwood would have a desire to become involved in."
