He has had the following to say about his appointment:
"My aims for Barkingside are simply to assist Gus the manager in evaluating the current playing group and get them into a way of playing which suits the current crop of players.
"We will now doubt modify the player base where needed and very simply the job is to keep the club in the Ryman North.
"The league is competitive and it's fair to say we can't compete with any of the other clubs in terms of facility and finances, however we will try to compete 100% in every game."
