Aveley FC are pleased to announce that their new manager taking over the realms after Lee Hodges’s recent resignation is Justin Gardner.
Club Secretary, Craig Johnson told Pitchero: “Justin is an up and coming manager, who has cut his teeth at Bethnal Green United FC, taking them into the Essex Senior League and winning three trophies in the last two seasons.
“He has been on our radar for a while now, and we have watched his progress with interest over the past year or so. We beleive Justin has the desire and commitment levels required to be sucessful, something that has been disappointing in managers that we have appointed since the departure of Rod Stringer to Braintree some 18 months ago.
“However that’s down to us as a club, and we take the responsibilty and would only appoint a person if we thought they were up to the task. Some decisions you get right, sadly we have got a few wrong, but we move on in the belief that Justin will meet our expectation levels.
“Justin’s appointment has been made with the long term in mind, in that we are realistic to know that our Ryman Premier Division days are all but gone. However that will not stop Justin from trying to win each and every game, as he takes charge for the first time this weekend with a home game against Wingate & Finchley.”
I am sure Justin will be making a few additions to the squad, so why not pop along to Mill Field this Saturday (25th February) and see the new Millers in action.
