Kev Adair & Carl Harris

It’s been a couple of weeks now since Carl and I were offered the job here at Alton FC. To say the weeks have kept us busy would be an understatement but that’s exactly why we wanted it.

This kind of busy brings enjoyment to us; that's the reason we have taken this role and should be the reason the players want to do it too - enjoyment. When I say this we are not expecting everyone to just turn up and have a laugh, I mean turn up, work hard together, have fun together and with commitment there is no telling where it can take us.

I’m pleased and excited to have been given this opportunity and with Carl and Jack Harris alongside me nothing will go without the attention it requires. It is difficult to set targets this early but one thing I can assure you of is our desire to achieve as much as is possible. We are committed to this for the long term and have a 4 year plan. If things work out well we hope to fulfil this and then be in a position to add further years and to continue progressing and achieving as a club.

People that know me will know what I’m about and for those that don’t I can assure you I’ll be doing my utmost to make this a success, we come to bring a certain way of thinking as a team and also a way of playing.

We want this to be enjoyable for ourselves and the whole group, this is after all our hobby. With discipline, commitment and hard work we can all give this a real go. To do this all with peoples blessings and best wishes would be great.

We welcome all the players who were involved last season and newcomers. Pre-season training starts on Thursday 20th June, 7pm – 9pm then continues Saturday 22nd June, 10am - 12 noon, followed by every Tuesday and Thursday, 7pm - 9pm.

Our pre-season fixtures start with a visit to the Enclosure from Alresford Town on Tuesday 9th July, 7.45pm.

Up the brewers, I look forward to meeting you all, players and supporters alike.

Kev
First Team Manager
