Fleet Town have announced the appointment of former Guildford City boss Steve Dormer as the Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central club`s new manager.
Highly experienced coaches Sam Rafique and Mark Whitely will join Dormer to make up, what will be, a very impressive coaching line up to start the new campaign.
Dormer brings with him considerable experience as both a player and coach at a number of different clubs including AFC Wimbledon, Southall, Yeading, Wealdstone and Spelthorne Sports.
Rafique is a fully qualified UEFA B coach licence and Whiteley has coached both youth and senior level football and is vastly experienced in the care and treatment of sports injuries.
Rafique and Whitely were most recently at Godalming Town and prior to that shared many successes at local rivals Camberley Town.
“Steve and his team bring with them exactly the experience and ambition that we’re looking for to drive Fleet Town Football Club forward and we’re delighted to welcome them to the club,” said Fleet chairman Chris Arnold. “Furthermore, they’re well connected with the local football community and we’re looking forward to them using their knowledge and expertise to build on our existing squad as well as focusing on bringing youth players through.”
Commenting on his appointment, Dormer said: “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to manage Fleet Town Football Club and am excited at the task in hand. We’ve got an ambitious management team and we will be working hard to push the players with the aim of achieving the highest possible level of success for the club”.
