Saturday 19th July 2014
The first team kicked off their 2014-15 pre-season campaign with the short trip to near neighbours London Lions. After going 1-0 down, we came back to win 5-2 thanks to goals from Ivan Machedo (2), Nick Chrysanthou (2) and Josh Noyes in a good team performance that included a mix of last year's squad and also some new faces. Our next game is on Tuesday evening, 6.45pm kick off against Bushey Sports Club.
New 1st team management appointed
We are pleased to announce a new first team management of Micky Hazard, Franco Sidoli, Lewis Dommett and Hector Varela. As a player, Micky was a member of the Tottenham team that won the 1982 FA Cup and UEFA Cup in 1984. He also went on to play for Chelsea, Portsmouth, Swindon Town and then Tottenham for a second spell. Since the end of his playing career, Hazard was Youth Academy Coach at Crystal Palace and has more recently been involved on the management team of Sevenoaks Town and Hoddesdon Town. Micky will be supported by Franco Sidoli, Lewis Dommett and Hector Varela who are all well-known to the club as, along with Alexis Nicolas (Alexis will also be returning to the club as a player), they formed our 1st team management team during a successful 2012-13 season in which we reached the final of the Premier Division Cup and built up a good reputation within the league for playing attractive football. The club believe this is an important step in the restructuring of the club team management. We hope to retain all of last season's playing squad and also welcome the addition of some new players to strengthen it. Further details about plans for pre-season will follow.
Chairman, Hadley FC
