By Head Coach, Nick Reed.
I have to say, its been fun! It seems after 4 years, and god only knows how many thousands of hours of training sessions, tournaments, games and arguments, im moving on to pastures new! Yes, london is indeed calling, and at the end of the season, i will cease to be head coach of the club. I will however still have a role as club chairman, and i will still edit the website, but the days of me screaming and shouting on wednesdays and sundays will soon be gone! So my suitable replacement? who knows!!!! im taking applications at the moment for a new head coach and if anyone is interested in coaching with thanet, please drop me a line at the address below. Anyway, here is looking into the more imediate future and towards the youth games and the playoffs!
