Most of the existing squad have come over from another team & have been joined by another player to bring the current squad up to 15.
I have had the privilege of working with most of the current squad for 3-4 years & they are without doubt a fantastic group of young men, who are polite, hard working & supportive of each other both on & off of the pitch
We train on Tuesday evenings at the sports centre & Friday evenings on the Astro pitch at Redbridge school throughout the year come rain or shine.
My name is Lee, I am 47 years old & am the coach & assistant manager for the squad & work alongside Daren who is the Manager.
I am a director of a family run swimming pool & hot tub business in Chandlers ford & work alongside a team of 9 people constructing, refurbishing & maintaining pools & hot tubs in Hampshire.
In my spare time I enjoy a few beers, watching football & BBQ's, preferably all at the same time!!
I have known Daren for several years now, primarily as a parent in past years, but he gladly stepped up to manage last season, when the previous manager could no longer comit, which as some of you may know, isnt the easiest of things to do with a bunch of teenagers!!
However, we are both great believers in you get what you give & we have shown these young people our upmost respect & have received that in return with their hard work & supportive & positive attitudes.
Although last season was cut short we had a great run in for the second half of the season & would have finished in top 4th or 5th place which was a fantastic achievement for everyone involved.
We are regularly supported by our parent 'Respect steward' & parent lines person & parent referee, whenever they are called upon, not to mention the fantastic support we receive each game from parents, grandparent & other family & friends.
