This is a great achievement for Gareth who only started coaching the team 3 and half years ago after the previous manager left. He became an FA qualified coach and set out to put his training into practice. The team currently has 5 of the original players that used to regularly get beat by more than 10 goals a game! He set himself a goal to turn this team around using the modern coaching techniques and drills within 2 years. This target was met when he took the team to the cup final and win the Wilf Jenkinson cup at Under 10’s this season. Gareth said “ to be nominated for this award was a complete shock let alone to win it. My life revolves around this team and I couldn’t have won this without the kids commitment” Gareth’s team currently train twice a week and play in competitive leagues Saturday & Sundays and are looking to add one more child to the squad as the team makes the transition from 7 to 9 aside football next season.
