Gary is an FA Level Two licensed coach and steeped in local football.
Having successfully coached at youth level, Gary moved into both coaching and playing for the Baptists – a natural choice given he grew up just a stone’s throw from the club’s home ground in Battle.
Gary tasted success leading the reserve side when they romped to the then East Sussex Football League Division Seven title in 2012. He has since made the team into perennial promotion challengers in Divisions Four and Five and led the side to a lower division cup final in 2014 and repeated the trick in the 2016 season.
He also serves diligently as the club’s fixture secretary and guides its future strategy as a valuable member of the committee.
