  PAST MANAGERS

Any help with filling in the gaps would be much appreciated

Craig Tanner


Summer 2013 - Summer 2015

Tans cut his teeth as a player at Tooting and when injury cut short a fine playing career it was back home for his first managerial appointment.

Phil Simpson


Feb - May 2013

Also appointed from within Simpson made an encouraging start, but a run of twelve without a win only ended on the final day of the season.

Jamie Martin


Oct 2012 - Feb 13

Promoted from assistant to Forzoni as player/manager, Jamie added steel to the side, lifting them from the foot of the table. However, one cut too much to his playing budget forced him to stand down.

Roberto Forzoni


Summer - Oct 2012

The first managerial appointment of sports psychologist, motivational speaker and  magician Forzoni saw an array of clipboard jockeys appearing pitchside,  watching a talented group of individual players who simply did not play as a team.  The experiment was brought to a close when Roberto was asked to disappear following a humiliating defeat at Hythe Town.

Kenny Brown


Dec 2011 - Summer 2012


A highly experienced player and manager, Kenny was brought in on the back of a possible club takeover and was followed by a wave of high profile signings. However, the takeover never materialised and the money dried up, leading to a humiliating finish to the season with relegation the inevitable conclusion


Mark Beard


2010 - Dec 2011

With an impressive playing career behind him Mark began his managerial career at Sussex County league side Haywards Heath, joining Terrors as his first senior appointment. A highly personable and communicative person, Mark was never given the opportunity to established a settled side, despite his obvious abilities as a coach.

Billy Smith & George Wakeling  


2006 - April 2010

Former club captain Billy Smith was joined by fellow experienced manager George to form a dream team that finally brought the good times back to the club. The icing on the cake was a first appearance in the FA Cup proper since Billys playing days, but the greatest achievement was building a solid, stable team that reclaimed a place in the Ryman Premier division. A trio of county cup wins provided even more cause for celebration

Richard Cadette


2002 - May 2006

Former Millwall and Falkirk striker, Richard was involved in the youth setup at Millwall before being appointed at Imperial Fields. Always willing to give the youngsters chance his teams produced some exciting performances, but tended to come unstuck against more experienced opponents.

               ladies team and subsequently managed the Estonian Ladies national side where, as of 2015, he remains.
