Paul Turner is in the process of structuring his management team with a view of giving each member of the team specific roles and responsibilities. Coach John McKay will take on the role of Development Officer.
John will work closely with Paul Turner, Mark Clements & Graham Pope to act as a bridge between the two teams and identify players who have the potential to step up. He will also act as liaison between Poole Town FC Under 18’s (Players and Parents) (The team which Joe Barron is managing on a Sunday) to identify any young players who are capable of playing at New Milton’s level in an adult league. John will work closely with Joe on a Sunday, and potentially offer any up and coming stars the opportunity to develop through a pathway plan into adult football.
This is one of the first steps in our link relationship with Poole Town FC.
John will use his extensive contacts to scout and ID players on Saturdays and Sundays in local leagues. John has over 30 years experience in local non league football and his skills and professionalism will be a real asset to the club in fulfilling this crucial role.
