Fri 21st January '22 First Team Management Announcement at Loxwood FC
New First Team Management at Loxwood FC
Loxwood FC are delighted to announce their new First Team Management as Ian Payne and Lee Kennedy take the helm with immediate effect.
The pair take over from the interim management of Mark Courtney and Matt McCabe and we thank them for all they have done. Mark continues his roll on the Committee with the Club and Paul Dowdell remains as goal keeping coach.
Ian and Lee have huge experience between them with Ian having played professionally in the UK and US and then after 8 years at Crawley Town FC and a few years at Horsham FC he made his way into management under John Maggs.
Ian said, "over the years I have gained knowledge and experience from some great managers, coaches and players and am now looking forward to bringing that to Loxwood to see how we can progress the current squad and build on the youth and create an U23 set up to further build for the future.
Likewise Lee has over 20 years experience coaching across all age groups and is an FA licenced coach and a member of the Professional Football Scouts Association. He has coached at several Sussex Clubs, most recently at Storrington FC. He said, "I'm delighted to join the Magpies and excited at the challenge ahead".
Mark Lacey (Club Chairman) said, "I'm really pleased to get Ian and Lee on board with their wealth of experience. The guys have made a fabulous start behind the scenes and the place is really buzzing; I can't wait to see the progress that will inevitably be made. Our short term focus is clearly about results but this is just part of a longer term development plan."
