Ollie Drake – Head Coach
Ollie joined the club after winning the League Title with Hardwick last season. Young enthusiastic and passionate coach who at still 25 years young as a range of experience in senior football. A new coach to the league but one who is very much looking forward to the challenge ahead. Sponsored by: J&J Drake
Chris Hyem – Player/Assistant
“Mr Godmanchester” wears his heart on his sleeve and has an ongoing love for the club. Chris loves his football and gives his all in every game, plays in the heart of the midfield, loves a ping and the odd tackle. Occasional drink, angry man but very much a players and fans favourite.
Steve Drake – Assistant
Stevo like Ollie joins from title winning Hardwick. His positive attitude, love for every individual player and strong motivation qualities add to our management team. Another favourite in the dressing room and well known for his one liners.
Tom Sweeney – Coach
Tom is currently studying for his UEFA B licence and has joined the club to gain the experience of working in and around a semi-professional coaching set up. Very analytical coach who studies the game throughout his life. Big future ahead.
Dan Coe - GK Coach
Dan also joins the coaching team looking to gain experience, currently going down the path of being a goalkeeper coach who is very keen, hugely committed individual who is only 18 years old. Sponsored by: Ollie Drake Sports Coaching
Errol McGammon- Strength and Conditioning Coach
Errol has been a fabulous addition to our coaching team, his knowledge is second to none and he will be highly responsible for the players being fit and staying fit throughout the season. Another favourite amongst the players and demonstrates a lovely beard.
Kev Nixon – Kit Man
Kev brings a level of commitment like no other, attends every game and has our dressing room looking neat and tidy before and after the game. Another one with an ongoing love relationship with the club.
Phil Peachey – Goalkeeper
Phil joined Godmanchester fresh from winning the league with Hardwick last season. A goalkeeper that brings a huge amount of quality and a desire to win any game of football. Makes himself a presence and relishes a challenge. Regular drinker, very hard to keep up with.
Jamie Short – Defender
Jamie is currently on loan from St Ives where last season he made a few first team appearances, can play anywhere across the back line and looks a very bright prospect for the future.
Tom Moran – Defender – Club Captain
Tom is one of the longest serving players at the club, his passion and fight to achieve high standards and win games has been rewarded with the captain’s arm band for the season. His big strong and a tough opponent to be up against.
Sam Coe – Defender
Sam is experiencing his first go at this level of football, a natural athlete with a vast knowledge for the game. Captained Hardwick to the league title last season and will be a terrific addition into our defence.
Elkanah Sibanda – Defender
Elks signed this season from Histon where he spent 5 years. Very experienced for a young age and has bags of talent. Quick and a very good passer of the ball will be a key player in our side this season.
Charlie Bowen – Defender
Tall commanding centre half who takes no prisoners in a tackle. Comfortable with the ball at his feet and great aerial presence in both boxes. Plays with swagger and a winning mentality.
Harry Moran – Defender
Brother of Tom and displays the same qualities, plays as a full back, strong and loves a big tackle, Harry will be a great prospect over the next few years.
Ross Munro – Midfield
Strong ball playing midfielder who loves to get on the ball and try and play whenever possible, superb mover of the ball and loves to get stuck in, proven experience and quality at this level and other huge roll to play in the team this season.
Mike Hyem - Midfield
(On loan from St neots) On his day undoubtedly one of the best players in the league. Box to box full of energy and a goal getting midfielder. Hard working and fantastic ability. One of many of the wind up merchants and characters in the squad.
Joe Furness – Midfield
Joe was part of the Godmanchester side from last season, committed boy who is a box to box midfielder. Good physical presence and has a sweet left foot with experience at this level.
Glenn Hodgson – Midfield
Hodgy was another brought over by Drake from Hardwick, tall commanding midfielder who has all the attributes to succeed at this level. Great tackler and passer of the ball and if he stays fit will contribute a huge amount to the team.
Simon Unwin – Midfield
Reece King – Winger
Reece was a huge contributor to last season’s team, quick lively winger who likes to run at defenders and can play on either side of the pitch. One to watch this season.
Jack Chandler – Winger
Jack brings over with him a lot of quality, has very good feet along with pace and is also good in the air. Another one who isn’t proven at this level but has the ability to be a game changer. Lots expected of this player.
Tom Spark – Winger
Sparky has bags of experience at this level and higher, can play anywhere across the front line or deeper if needed. Excellent feet and lots of skill to accompany his pace. Expected to be a key player this season.
Matt Allan – Striker
Matt recently signed from Soham Town Rangers. Had previously been in the “Goddy” youth set up before joining Histon and breaking into the 1st team after finishing his scholarship. Matt has bags of pace, a good 1st touch and eye for goal.
Austen is a hard working honest forward. Can play anywhere up front and with good feet, pace, strength in the air and without doubt a goal getter, he is an important part of the squad and one of the great characters in it to. Well respected.
Arran Mackay – Striker
Arran is a proven goalscorer at this level, he brings with him good pace and the ability to play different roles as a striker. Great ability in the air and is also equally adaptable to playing at the back. Big season ahead.
Ben Yeomans – Striker
Ben demonstrates great target man qualities, he’s strong and loves a physical battle, good in the air as well as on the ground Ben is also a big voice throughout the side and is a great motivator for the team. Key player in the side.
