At last nights meeting under the guidance of Steve Roscoe the committee appointed Luke Kelland as manager of the 1st team. Steve cannot at this time commit to the evening games that are set to take place in august as they did last season and possibly from September the Saturdays too. As the respectful man that he is he didn't want to put the club in a bad position and said it was probably best to appoint someone now rather than try in September. He suggested we talk to Luke and after further discussion, last night both parties accepted to work with each other for the forth coming season. Luke will now move to appoint his own assistants and coaches and put into place pre season friendlies, working closely with the reserve side as well as the 3rds and the youth.
Steve wants to remain an active member of our committee and will help out with any team or event when needed next season. Kieran Leah & Joff Mallaber will continue with the hard work and recruitment success of last seasons with running of our reserve side. The 3rd team management is 90% assured but more talks are to take place on Thursday the 1st July prior to our AGM where we can confirm the management of next season for the thirds.
Pre season Training for all will commence on Tuesday 30th June, 6:30pm at Vogue Park, and will continue there after every Thursday & Tuesday.
