By Metrogas FC

Metrogas Delighted to Announce Mike Jones as New First Team Manager.

Metrogas FC are extremely pleased to welcome Mike Jones to Metrogas FC as first team manager. Mike joins Metrogas having previously been at Welling Town.

Secretary Tim Morgan stated; “I’m delighted to have Mike on board. He was the absolute standout candidate for the job.

What he achieved with Welling Town in helping take them from Division 3 West of the Kent County League to the top of the SCEFL Division 1 shows the quality of him as a manager and a coach.

Once I’d spoken to Mike I knew he would be able to come in and do a great job for Metrogas. As a club we want to compete at as higher level as we can and once I shared my vision for what we are trying to achieve as a club and where I want us to be in the next 3 years he was very excited with the role. He is keen to engage with our youth section which is very important to the club that we develop players from our youth section and ensure they are given a chance in senior football.

I’d like to wish Mike all the success in his new role at Metrogas and will now go about looking to build a competitive side”.

As a club we are also pleased to confirm that Gary Hopper will remain our U23/Reserve Team manager for the 2019/20 season. Gary has done a great job in building a youthful side who have had an excellent run since Christmas and that is down to the hard work of Gary and the coaching staff.

Also remaining with Gary in an assistant manager role is Stuart Mcivor who has been in the role since just before Christmas. Stuart run our U18 Kent Youth League side during 2018/19 before assisting Gary.

Secretary Tim Morgan said this; “i’m delighted Gary is staying on. He has had a fantastic first season and the results haven’t reflected his achievements. He has taken a very young side including players from both this season and last season’s youth section and blooded them in senior football. The sides recent form
has been excellent and we hope this will continue into next season.

I’m also delighted Stu is staying to help Gary with more of our current U18’s committing to senior football at the club for next season. Stu has been fantastic since he came on board in December and needs to take a lot of credit for recent good form with the work he has done with the side on the training pitch. With Stu on board this should further assist with the transition of more of our youth players”.

Here is to an excellent 2019/20 season for the club.
