The recent creation of Somerset County club Nailsea and Tickenham Football Club has sparked media interest in the form of Sky and Freeview’s Made In Bristol TV channel.

Nailsea and Tickenham will be featured on the sports programme Subs Bench, presented by Nigel Turner during the week commencing July 13.

The feature will consist of a look behind the scenes as Nailsea and Tickenham prepare for their first season since the merger and will also include interviews with club chairman Bob Gregory and committee member Al Parsons, where they discuss the reasons for the merger and exciting plans for the new club.

The club have been busy so far pre-season with improvements to the ground underway at Fryth Way and securing long term sponsorship with S & R Burchills in Nailsea, as they look to continue to form links within the local community.

Nailsea and Tickenham have also announced a series of pre-season friendlies including a midweek evening fixture against Toolstation Premier team Bristol Manor Farm on August 4 at home.

Training will continue on Tuesdays and Thursdays every week at Fryth Way (7pm). New players are very welcome to join the sessions.

Made in Bristol is a relatively new channel dedicated to the local area - tune in to Subs Bench at 7pm, Sky 117, Virgin 159 or Freeview 8 to see the lads in action. For more information on any aspect of the club, please contact alpars7@icloud.com
