The recent 8-2 win against Uni Strollers saw two long standing members of the club pass significant career landmarks.

Club Captain Oli Cochrane (pictured) made his 100th WWFC appearance on Sunday. He debuted at the back end of 12/13 making two appearances and quickly became skipper prior to the 13/14 season.

His first few games were at right back in 13/14, but he soon moved forward to central midfield where he thrived; reaching double figures in both goals and assists. Since then he has played in every outfield position.

He won both Goal of the Season and Most Assists in 15/16, before leading us to our first League title in 17/18.

Record so far:

100 appearances
60 wins
26 goals
31 assists
11 MoM's.

WWFC founder Matt Gibbins also passed a huge landmark; his 200th game as Manager. Gibbo's first spell in charge was in 08/09 where he took on a difficult job following our double promotion to Division 2. In our first season at this level Matt comfortably kept us in the Division with relegation never a threat.

He returned to the role in 11/12 where he strengthened the squad and lead us to our first ever cup final.

13/14's strong finish saw us promoted, at very late notice, to Division 1 for the 14/15 season. Although it was sometimes a tough season we finished midtable and have built on this every season since.

Title challenges followed in 15/16 and 16/17 before we finally broke our duck in 17/18 where a superb club record run of 10 straight league wins saw us lift silverware for the first time.

Record so far:

200 games managed
107 wins
21 draws
72 losses
53% win rate
1 x Division 1 Title
1 x Promotion
1 x League Runners Up
1 x League Cup Runners Up

Congratulations to both.
