Hartley Wintney FC announce experienced additions to coaching staff

With promotion secured to Step 3 in the newly formed Evo-Stik Southern League Premier South, Hartley Wintney FC are delighted to announce a number of backroom signings. These appointments will boost the club's chances of success in what is the club's biggest challenge to date.

Joining First Team Manager Anthony Millerick and Head Coach Luke Tuffs will be Sam Rafique, Keith Benjamin and Mark Hurst who all have unique talents within the footballing spectrum and will each provide huge benefit to the club and the team.

Sam Rafique holds a UEFA License and is currently an academy coach with Aldershot Town FC. He has recently had spells at Fleet Town FC, Godalming Town FC and Camberley Town FC, the latter with a considerable amount of success. Sam Rafique will work in-line with Luke Tuffs, ensuring sessions are to the highest standard and no stone left unturned when it comes to game preparation. Luke and Sam have known each other well for a number of years and both share the same footballing philosophy and passion for the game.

Keith Benjamin is an excellent and experienced goalkeeping coach who is one of the most liked people in local non-league football. Keith has known Anthony Millerick and Luke Tuffs for over ten years, working with them both whilst they were players at Camberley Town FC. Keith comes with a wealth of experience including recent spells at Farnborough FC and Kingstonian FC. We are delighted Keith has chosen to join the management team at The Row, coming to us directly from local rivals Farnborough FC. He will work closely with our group of talented goalkeepers and provide specialist goalkeeper mentoring and coaching.



Mark Hurst (pictured above, right) is one of the highest regarded coaches locally and has worked with Anthony Millerick previously at Cove FC. Mark's excellent reputation in football goes before him, and having worked as a coaches' coach at both Fulham FC and Villareal FC recently, he is sure to benefit everybody directly involved with football at the club. The coaching team are absolutely thrilled to have Mark's qualities within the camp, and the players who have already been exposed to some of his sessions will pay testament to this excitement.

The club are very pleased to welcome them all to Hartley Wintney FC and very excited by the prospect of the qualities they will each add to what is already a successful current player group.
"We believe making these signings and gaining their commitment gives us the best possible chance for further success this year as we continually look to improve the club both on and off the pitch," said First Team Manager, Anthony Millerick.

Further exciting news on the final addition to the club's footballing structure will follow publicly in due course.
