Roffey facing changes at Management Level

Updated: Oct 31

This first season in step 5 football has been a tough baptism of fire for our club, especially after the resignation of Andy Lampard who successfully brought the team into the Premier Division of the SCFL at the end of 2022 season. We also suffered from the transfer of the majority of the senior players to other clubs.


The club was very fortunate that the extremely experienced Management and Coaching team of Terry Eames and Mark Hawthorne, agreed to step in on an Interim basis, to help stabilise things. Since July they have brought in a number of new players, and the largely younger, inexperienced side has progressed massively under their watch as they helped the lads prepare for the significant physical and mental challenges faced at this level. Both have taken a decision now to move on, and we fully understand their reasons for doing so.


Everyone at the club is hugely grateful to Andy, Terry and Mark for all their hard work and support.


Thanks also to Anne Eames for her support at the club since the Summer, as Secretary as well as helping with so many other things. We are very grateful.


We wish them all every success and on behalf of the Club thank them wholeheartedly for their efforts on our behalf.
