Wembley FC, which last week announced a new sponsorship deal with Budwiser, has today announced former England boss Terry Venables as its new technical advisor.
This is Venables’ first managerial role since his term as England's assistant manager.
He said: "Managing, coaching and teaching football has been an essential part of my life for over 30 years. This opportunity to share my knowledge of decades with an eager group of players and coaches was too important to turn down. If they are willing to learn, I am willing to teach. Grassroots football is essential for the lifeblood of the professional game and if I can leave Wembley FC in a better position than I found it then it will be a job well done. It is early days but the signs are encouraging."
Iain Newell, Budweiser's UK marketing director, added: "We believe that the best way to champion The FA Cup is to celebrate its uniqueness from the grassroots up helping to create unexpected moments and real anticipation for what may come. We're pleased to be able to support Wembley FC as they strive to achieve their dreams and we think their story will really resonate with FA Cup fans regardless of which team they support."
