Since that first role, he has also worked as Development Officer and Football Development Manager, using his expertise to help out in a number of ways and becoming someone that the Community Foundation kids can look up to.

JJ commented:

“I’m really excited to have been offered the position of General Manager. When I first joined, COVID had just begun so i was extremely grateful to the Foundation and Community Club for supporting my role and keeping me involved. I’m most looking forward to continuing the positive impact we strive to make in our community daily. I have a fantastic team behind me, and with their support our aim is to be the heartbeat of our local area.

His enthusiasm, passion and energy are infectious to those around him and to achieve what we all aim to achieve, it’s vitally important that we surround ourselves with as many people with these qualities as we possibly can. JJ has worked under some experienced GMs in the past and it’s evident he has learnt from these experiences, as a club we are passionate about developing and promoting our people.
