Norman and Nielsen Put Pen to Paper

Aron Sharpe writes ..... Another season comes to end and it unfortunately ends our current stay in the Ryman Premier Division. Disappointing yes, end of the world….. no! How many ever expected to see us even reach the play-offs in 2011, let alone win a treble, and spend the following three years in the Ryman Premier division? We have a philosophy/ethos and we shall be sticking to it. Anyone who knows me will not be surprised that next season started on Sunday, I have no less ambition than for the club to bounce straight back and I am pleased to announce agreement has been made with our current management team to continue to implement our development plan at the club - and we are pleased that our director of football David Norman and head coach Daniel Nielsen have committed their midterm future to the club. Many other teams would be distressed at relegation, however we must be realistic and understand on our current budget it was always going to be difficult to maintain our status. Despite some negative comments by other teams' supporters on the stadium being too big for the club and having very little support (although hugely vociferous), it is amazing how other coaching staff and committees hold us in high esteem. Looking with envy at our youth development programme and seeing who they may pick for their teams for the following season. Today sees another Wingate success story - Scott Kashket who signed a two year professional contract at Leyton Orient. This is on top of the eight other boys who made debuts at the age of 18 this season in the Ryman Premier division. What should we count as success? The first team squad have immense loyalty to the club and we are pleased to say that we have already secured the services of most of our existing squad for next year with just a few left to put pen to paper. I have full belief in all of my team, directors, players, supporters and volunteers.The only thing I would have changed this year is our luck!! Here is to a great summer and a winning return next season. Aron
