I have great pleasure in confirming the new Great Britain Deaf Football Men’s Management Team appointments. They are:
Assistant Manager – Tony Adams whom has previously worked with me to a great effect and has a wealth of football experience which we will be looking to instill into the GB team.
Head Coach – Mark Saunderson whom has had a coaching stint with GB Men’s football team in 2006-07 when the team won Silver medal at the Europeans (a position that has yet to be bettered). He has since developed his coaching portfolio by managing West Ham ladies and coaching other notable teams. He also has developed in-depth knowledge of Deaf football by coaching Fulham Deaf Football Club which saw the club achieve the double last season (BDF and EDF cups).
I am extremely lucky to have such experienced people joining the team; this will give us a massive boost for the forthcoming Deaflympics 2017 in Sansum, Turkey, where we will be looking to get the team onto the podium and bring home the gold medal!
There will be more news to come in my next statement so watch this space!
Please do not hesitate in contacting me if you have any queries.
Team Manager, GB Football (Men’s)
