2018/19 New Season…New Coaches & New changes to Committee

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)

U10 Juniors : TBC

U11 Colts : Darren Annon (FA Level 2 & last season`s U14s Coach)

U12 Juniors : Ramon Tavernier-Gustave (FA Level 1 Coach)

U13 Colts : Patrick Noirette (FA Level 3 & last season`s Aldershot Academy U12s 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 (info@claphamrangersfc.com)(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


Gary Clark (Director of Football)
