Meet Simon: The New U18 Lead Coach of Huntingdon Town FC

Huntingdon Town Football Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Simon as the new U18 lead coach. At 41 years old 🤔, Simon brings a wealth of experience and a dynamic approach to youth development, aiming to lead our young squad to success in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League.

A Wealth of Experience

Simon’s coaching journey has been marked by significant stints at several clubs, most recently spending several years at Cambridge City. His rich background includes coaching roles at East Ham Utd, Hornchurch, Wivenhoe, Cherry Hinton, Drayton Lions FC, Swavesey, and Over. This diverse experience has equipped him with the skills and knowledge to develop young talent effectively.

A Passion for Youth Development

Simon’s coaching philosophy centers on a holistic approach, focusing on technical skills, tactical awareness, physical fitness, and mental resilience. His dedication to fostering a positive and competitive environment aligns perfectly with Huntingdon Town FC’s mission.

“I’m thrilled to join Huntingdon Town FC and lead the U18 team in the Thurlow Nunn Youth League. My aim is to create a nurturing yet challenging environment where our players can develop and excel. I look forward to building a strong, cohesive team that can compete at the highest level,” Simon stated.

Personal Tidbits: More Than Just Football

Beyond football, Simon is an avid golfer with a respectable handicap of 13. This competitive spirit extends beyond the pitch, demonstrating his commitment to continuous improvement and discipline in all areas of his life unless he is found with Crofty and Ken at the Pavilion in Over.

In a light-hearted twist, Simon is seeking sponsors to help pay for a hair transplant, jokingly attributing his hair loss to coaching with Matt. This candid and relatable side of Simon adds a touch of personality, endearing him to the community and fans alike.

Looking Ahead: The Thurlow Nunn Youth League

The Thurlow Nunn Youth League is known for its competitive nature, offering a platform for young players to showcase their talent. Under Simon’s leadership, the U18 team is set to face this challenge head-on, with high hopes for a successful season.
