"We've been highly impressed with the improvements on the field of play under Sam. Through improved coaching standards and access to a strong pool of players, our first team have remained competitive and, hopefully, will achieve a top half finish at the end of this season."

"It's not only in regards to the first team's performances that we've been impressed though," Walduck continued. "Sam is a clubman through and through, supporting the club in social activities and, importantly, working alongside our Head of Youth Section Mari Green in helping integrate our senior and youth sections, which is important for us."
