Firstly, we are losing Milen Tanev (U13s & our Goalie Coach) to Liverpool & Wes Tyerman (U9 Colts Coach) to Lambeth Tigers & would like to thank them hugely for their very successful time with us & they will both be sadly missed.
Next season we will have 22 teams with an U18s team in the Tandridge League & the start of a Girls Development squad.
But the good news is that we have some good new coaches joining us for next season & some familiar faces taking over new teams :
U7s : Dijon Edward (FA Level 1 coach) from Charlton FC Development
U8 Youths : Chris Sullivan (FA Level 1 & last season`s U12 Colts)
U9 Juniors : TBC
U10 Colts : Johan Nazari (FA Level 1 & Chelsea Development & last season`s U12 Youths Coach)

U11 Colts : Darren Annon (FA Level 2 & last season`s U14s Coach)
U12 Juniors : Ramon Tavernier-Gustave (FA Level 1 Coach)

U13 Youths : Rodney Chin (currently doing FA Level 2 & former semi-pro player)
U14s : Ivan Kapitanski (FA Level 3 & Barnet Academy Coach)
U15s : Nick Jones (FA Level 2 Coach & former Swindon player)
U18s : Wallace Hermit (FA Level 3 Coach, Football Masters degree & QPR Scout)
Goalkeeper Coach : TBA
Head Coach : Wallace Hermit
2nd Welfare Officer to support myself : Wallace Hermit (until some of our younger Coaches get qualified)
There are also changes to our committee due to the departure of Frank Trimboli (Chairman) who has finished his 2 year stint in the role & we would like to thank him for all his tremendous efforts & guidance over that period (most notably for getting the Nike partnership for the Cub), acting Chairman will be Wallace Hermit until we can find a more permanent applicant….any volunteers ?
Thanks too to Sana Ullah (Vice Chairman & U12 Juniors Team Coordinator) who arranged all of the Club`s insurance over the past 2 years.
Bene Welsh will be the Club`s Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org)(formerly Sponsorship Officer) with Many Thanks to Jenni Mitchell who previously Club Secretary over the last 2 years.
Corina Sylira will be Sponsorship Officer (formerly the Club`s Secretary)
Also we hope to announce a partnership with Next Gen Pro Academy (16 to 19yr olds) who can facilitate a Sports Science degree through their partnership with Loughborough University.
We are hoping to become an FA Charter Standard Club by the start of the new season & continue our partnership with Arsenal FC.
Yours in Football
