ROSS Weatherstone is hoping to provide Bracknell Town with the sort of quality service he gave to Binfield FC, writes Dave Wright.

As reserve team manager with the Moles, he guided them to the Suburban League's Mike Bidmead Trophy this year while providing a number of players for Roger Herridge's first-team squad.

Weatherstone has now stepped up a level by joining Bostik League side Bracknell and he will be taking charge of their newly-formed reserve side, although it has still be confirmed which league they will be in next season.

"I am really excited to be on board," said the former Oxford United and Boston United professional.

He is now the Global Premier Soccer's UK director of education and recruitment and will be based at Larges Lane.

"I enjoyed the job at Binfield and working with Roger, but the role here at Bracknell is a bit different," stated Weatherstone.

"We have 20 boys coming over from America to join our academy and it makes sense I'm here as it means I can keep a solid eye on those GPS players."

He continued: "The UK GPS is like a machine to service the main organisation in the USA based at Boston Massachusetts. We also have two professional partners in Valencia and Bayern Munich."

The German giants concentrate mainly on players in North America and Canada, leaving the rest of the world for Valencia.

Weatherstone added: "We – that's the other UK directors Simon Holloway and Neil Holloway and myself – knew we could establish partnerships with professional clubs, but we made a beeline with as many as non-league clubs as we could, with Bracknell among them."

In addition to the overseas students who are due over in August, Weatherstone will be working with local players and is confident he will have a "good mix" of talent under his wing at Larges Lane.

"We will be looking to develop them. From my point of view, a successful reserve team is important for Bracknell and at the end of the season the club will evaluate how many players we have provided for the first team."

Town's plans of entering their reserves in the Combined Counties League's Division One never came to fruition, and so they could be left with either the Suburban League or Hellenic League Division One East, where there is a one-team vacancy.
