I Promise Future Success​


The Brum’ boss headed to the Training ground confident that his squad will hit the ground running this season.

“It doesn’t happen overnight and can take maybe six or eight months to really be absorbed, but if you are prepared to work hard every game, you will always have a chance of being successful.
