Squad Update: 01/07/2022

With the player registration window for the 2022/23 season now officially open, the Colls can today confirm our retained players & current squad list. We can also confirm that we are opening the process of securing Player Sponsors for the upcoming season. Existing player sponsors will have a priority window to renew over the duration of pre-season, whilst new players are now open for sponsorship. Existing sponsors will be contacted over the coming days to discuss. To find out more, please visit athertoncollieries.co.uk/player-social-media-sponsorships/ Player sponsorship prices are frozen at £100 per player plus VAT, and sponsorship can be transferred if your player departs over the course of the season. Please speak to Rob at the club, or message us on Twitter (@ACFC1916), to find out more!
