We caught up with our new Technical Director to find out his thoughts on joining the Snakes:


“I’m delighted to be joining Woombye, it’s a fantastic family club with great values that align perfectly with my own. Everyone deserves the best coaching and learning environment no matter what their age or ability. We want to inspire our aspirational players to take their game to the next level but also give the same level of support to players starting out or playing socially without compromising our core values of affordability and inclusion” he added.
