Joe Sweeney and Paul Copson following yesterday’s game at Oxhey Jets.
Both expressed their frustration that recent performances and results were below the standard they and the club expected, given the squad of players assembled during the close season. In such circumstances they felt it was the right time to leave, allowing a new management team the opportunity to rebuild the club’s promotion push.
Joe and Paul have done a fantastic job at the club over the past three seasons. Two FA Vase runs which saw the club reach the quarter final in each of the last two seasons were the highpoint of their tenure and without the intervention of covid lockdowns, promotion may well have been achieved last season. The committee, supporters and players are united in their thanks and appreciation for all their hard work and we wish them both every success in the future. They will always be welcome at our club and should leave us with their heads held high.
