Arguably the most important signings of the close season is the First Team management team.

Matt Murphy, appointed first team manager, is well known in local football circles having previously managed Leiston Town u18s and Benhall first team, and also a former player of the Club. He endorses a possession based style of play, and his football principles match that of the Club.

Stephen Balls, first team coach, is a former player with the Club. Having recently returned to assist with the coaching of our u14 girls, he has obtained his coaching badge and brings a fresh approach to training which the players are enjoying.

Niki Jarvis, first team coach, is also a former player and brings enthusiasm to training and on the sideline. He expects nothing less than full commitment and is a great club man.

The management team have already gelled well and are settling into their respective roles. The players are buying into the new style of play and they have created a great atmosphere in the Club.
