In the past week Peter Russell and Mark Hughes have left the club for pastures new.
Peter has joined St.Albans and we wish him well. Peter was at the club prior to my arrival and was a great help in my settling in. He has become a good friend since then and has helped in the success we achieved.
I brought Hughesy in as captain after keeping us up. He was my first target in putting together a promotion side. He didn’t disappoint leading us to victory and promotion on that unforgettable day at Bracknell. After Rambo’s departure Mark replaced him and became a valued right hand man as well as a top notch coach. We made a good team and put together a side that would have been in the mix come the end of the season.
I have moved quickly to get in a replacement. I compiled a list of 20 but there was one name that stood out and ticked every box. I have so much time for him, he’s an ex player, the boys love him much as do I. He’s a gentleman and a very good coach. He shares my hunger for us to be promoted and will make our dressing room an even more amazing place to be.
Welcome back Ugo Udoji!
