Management Plans move ahead for 2019/20 Season

Fleet town would like to unveil the new coaching set up for the 2019/20 season:


1st Team Manager David Kelly
1st Team Assistant Manager Tommy Taylor
1st Team Coach Chris Neate
1st Team Player Coach Stuart Derry
Head of Recruitment Neil Selby
Under 18’s Manager Darren Edwards
Under 18’s Assistant Manager Damian O’Connor


We are delighted to keep Neil Selby on board as our Head of Recruitment for both the Under 18s and First Team. Neil is a local man who knows Fleet well and many of the local players from his successful 2 seasons with the under 18s. A number of players making first team experiences over the last 2 seasons have developed through Neil’s under 18s team. He will be a welcome addition in helping us recruit the right players for the club to match the ethos we want to create.

Darren Edwards who is leaving his role as Fleet Town Colts chairman this season will be taking up a role as 18s Manager alongside his assistant Damian O’Connor. The first team and the under 18s will be working closely together this season to develop a pathway for under 18s players, this will continue the great work started last season in promoting players through our youth team into the first team.

I am delighted to have kept the group of coaches together  from last season as well as add Neil Selby to support the transition from the under 18s to the first team. It is important to build on the good work that we have done in developing players from the under 18s  and continue with the relationships that have been formed between the players and coaches. With a core of players committing to next season it’s an exciting time for the club which we hope to reflect both on and off the pitch.
