Spencer Knight has moved quickly to strengthen the back room team with the appointment of 1st Team Coach, Lee Protheroe.
Lee joins Wingate & Finchley after a distinguished non-league career counting Canvey Island, Chelmsford City, Aldershot, Ebbsfleet and Welling as some of his clubs. Since retiring from playing he has spent the last ten years in academy football honing his skills at the likes of Watford, Leyton Orient and most recently Crystal Palace.
Knight remarked: “Lee is fantastic coach, A-License qualified, and joins the team with a wealth of knowledge of football at Isthmian League level and much higher. We played together at numerous clubs during our careers and he is a proven winner. I’m delighted that he has chosen to join the project and I’m sure his enthusiasm and desire to be successful will rub off on everyone around us”
