Gary is a great person to have in and around the club.
Paul France – Assistant
Mr Calm in the dug-out passionate as anybody about Godmanchester Rovers Fc, Paul is constantly looking for ways in which he can support the progress of the club, on and off the field. Very popular in the dressing room, the place wouldn’t be the same without him.

Rich is exactly the sort of person who makes a non-league club run. If there is a job that Rich hasn’t done we are yet to find it (and if we do he will no doubt have a go). A top bloke and someone you want fighting for you not against you! Will not be in the dug-out next season as he steps up to his new role within the club.
Ben Newton (GK)
New to Godmanchester this seasons after we have tried a couple of people to fill this number 1 spot, Ben is just what we have been looking for and we wish we have found him sooner.

Very talented young attacking centre midfielder, can play out wide also if needed, Ryan has come from the Royston Town U18 set up last season and has made the jump up into senior football for this season. Ryan is a great lad to have in the squad and is still learning his trade but will be one to watch in the future.
Ben has joined us from just up the A1 and Yaxley Fc, Ben can play either centre back or holding midfield and is a very talented footballer, Ben does not mind a tackle and likes to get stuck in. He is a great talker throughout the game and is great to support the young guns of the squad.

Matt is very good with the younger ones and is a real leader on and off the pitch. we look forward to seeing Matt lead our team this season and many more to come.
we chased and chased for Ben's signature last season, but he was loyal to his previous club Ely City Fc ( which is good, great guy ) Ben is a young centre attacking midfielder who has a great engine to get around the pitch. Ben is a key member of this squad and he is a very talented young guy. His quick feet and the drop of the shoulder leaves most players on the pitch for dust. Ben is in charge of the tunes for the dressing room.
