Phil is leading the current U16 squad for the second season and is excited about their prospects. The team has been built up over the past few years with a solid group of players and with some recent additions Phil has acquired a very talented group of players. Phil always talks about how great his team are to work with because they have an excellent team spirit and are always prepared to work hard and improve their game both individually and collectively. This season Phil is hoping to feed his players into the U18 squad to give them the best chance of graduating into the first team squad.
I am very enthusiastic about football and I am always looking for ways to improve the players and myself. I am constantly working on my training sessions to ensure the players have the best chance to enjoy training and progress.Phil Hucker - U16 Lead Coach
