Gareth takes the U18s’ reins

By Stuart Morgan

Gareth Stobart will manage the U18s this season as he steps into the role vacated by David Altendorff

The club is delighted to announce that Gareth Stobart will take overall responsibility for the U18s for the coming 2019/20 season.

Gareth was assistant to last season's manager David Altendorff where together they jointly delivered the SCFL Central league title.

With David Altendorff moving into senior football as assistant manager at Lancing of which the club thank him for his time and wish him well in the future it was important that the club could keep a form of continuity that would help last season’s 1st years into 2nd years and at the same time help more U16s make the step up and Gareth is the perfect fit all round.

We caught up with Gareth and he had this to say, "I am looking forward to the new season, having been part of a winning squad last season, I am looking to build on the success and will be looking to further the team with fresh faces. Hopefully we can put together a team with a mix of last year’s players who will take the step up to their second year plus we the squad will have a lot of first years who will be able to develop against good opposition. I have Graeme Weston joining me as assistant, he is currently a full time staff member at Albion in the Community and is looking to be accepted onto the UEFA B licence Course.

The club will hold open trials for any first and second year U18s on 9th and 13th June of which more information will follow.

The club wishes Gareth and Graeme well for the forthcoming season.
