U18 Announcement

Steyning Town CFC are delighted to announce Jon Roberts as their Southern Combination Football League U18 manager for the 2024/25 season. Jon is well know in Sussex football through this spells at Worthing FC, Worthing Utd, East Preston FC and most recently Ferring FC. Jon has extensive experience of coaching and managing at Youth, U18 and U23s levels. He is an UEFA C Licensed Outfield and Goalkeeping coach, as well as completing FA Coaches Mentoring and Talent ID courses.

Jon is currently putting together his coaching team but we are in a position to confirm that Mark Langridge & Glen Souter will be joining him on the training ground, and in and around the dugout throughout next season.

The club are confident Jon can add huge value to the current squad moving to 2nd year under 18s, to the U16s coming up as 1st year under 18s and to new players that we as a club, and Jon, are keen to attract to the squad.

Jon said of his appointment “I’m really happy to be given this opportunity. This is a really exciting time for the club, following the first team’s promotion. The set up here is like none I’ve seen, even at higher levels both on the pitch and behind the scenes. This club has a massive future ahead of it and I want to play my part discovering and nurturing the next batch of young Barrowmen. I really enjoyed my 8 years at Ferring and last season I was able to help bring through regular U18 players to their U23 team as well as a few making first team appearances. That’s the goal this year to have players developing, enjoying football and playing to the highest level they can”

I’m sure you will all join us in giving Jon, Mark and Glen a warm welcome to Steyning Town FC and wish them all the very best in their new roles.
