We recognized that Matt put together a very young team and got them playing progressive, attacking football consistently. The prospect of him replicating this at Fawley is exciting for everyone at the club.

Kaine Stanton joins as the Assistant Reserve Team Manager (Pictures to follow). Most recently been playing for Totton & Eling and Hythe & Dibden, but has been recovering from an ACL injury since. Last season he started working with Matt Payne and became very highly regarded.

Jack Crane joins as the Reserve Team Coach (Pictures to follow) and is a local waterside lad currently doing his badges and sports science at University. Currently coaching at Marchwood Rangers Youth, he wanted to get involved with mens football and progress himself as a coach. His enthusiasm for the role and hands on approach will be welcome.
