A founding member of the club, Gary has been a leading light in the growth and success of Battle Baptists over the past decade.

A former non-league player, Gary helped the club fly up the divisions in its formative years, teaming displays as a prolific striker with a coaching role. He has since moved, almost exclusively, to the dugout, but has still been known to lace up his boots when the need arises!

On his watch, Battle have achieved a remarkable six promotions in ten seasons. Perhaps his crowning achievements were guiding the side to the National Christian Trophy Final in 2013 and securing intermediate status football for the club in 2014.  He oversaw their excellent 2016 ESFL Premier Division second place finish. The club also regularly tops the league fair play table, something which is of particular importance to him.

Gary is an FA Level 2 licensed coach and an experienced secondary school teacher.
