DEDICATED TO SAFELY DELIVERING GRASSROOTS FOOTBALL
I’ve been at the Club in various roles since 2009 and enjoy being part of a team helping youngsters enjoying their football. I support The Hammers and you may occasionally see me referee the odd game if the Fixtures Secretary is desperate!
CLUB / KIT MANAGER
Hi My name is Martin, I am the General Manager and Kit secretary at GYFC. I first came along to the club as a parent, when my two sons joined. I began as an Assistant Manager in 2007 and then went on to take the role of Manager for the team. I then managed my younger son for two seasons, whilst being Social Secretary and then the General Manager. I am an ardent Liverpool supporter.
I have been involved with Galleywood for 5 years and registration secretary for 4 years. Just stopped standing at the edge of a football pitch after 17 years which included 4 years as a manager.
Massive West Ham United and Take That fan.
My connection with Galleywood started 7 years ago when my son started in his first U7 team with my husband as the coach. I support Arsenal and have been on the committee for almost 6 years, it's a rewarding feeling to support a club as it grows and be able to give something back to your community.
This is a family club and we pride ourselves on offering Football to the local and wider community. I joined the club in 2020 as a team manager and shortly after became club secretary.
Hi My name is Tania and I am the Club Welfare Officer. I ensure all volunteers in the club have a DBS and that all coaches renew their Emergency Aid and Safeguarding Certificates. I also deal with any issues that arise regarding children’s welfare. You will also see me in the Clubhouse Kitchen on a Saturday morning providing refreshments for Volunteers, Parents and Players
PITCHES / TROPHY / REFEREE SECRETARY
My role within the club is fixtures secretary. I coordinate all fixture KO times, pitch allocation and referee appointments for all teams. I also arrange trophies at season end. We believe that all players deserve a reward for all their efforts. I am a current team manager and I love the coaching side. Avid West Ham supporter.
I’ve been involved with Galleywood Youth for four years and Communications Officer for three years. I am an Arsenal fan, but can be seen most Sundays over at Chelmer Watching the football or managing my team!
