Chairman & Trustee
Initially got involved with the club twenty years ago as a parent when his son George joined the club when he was 6. Then become manager when he was u8 through to u21.
After that was asked to become a member of the committee, followed by joining as a trustee.
Then became the club chairman and with his vision he led the club from Intermediate football into Senior football & instigated all the ground developments that have brought the club into the Senior non-league game.
Mark has been at the club for twenty years, initially being asked by a friend who was a manager of one of our youth teams to help with coaching, as Mark had experience & played at a high standard of semi-professional football.
Mark then was asked by current chairman Simon to work alongside him when his team was under 14’s and continued all the way through to under 21’s. Mark was then asked to become the club’s treasurer as well as continuing to coach our youth teams as well as our first team coach, so is fully embedded into the Buckhurst Hill Family.
Joined the club when her son joined the club at mini soccer and soon fell in love with all what we do and wanted to be more involved. Katie joined the committee to help support with the big increase of administration for the club which then evolved into club secretarial role and so much more with all the development plans and funding applications.
Katie is now a full-time employee of Buckhurst Hill Football club and oversees all the day to day accounting and supports Simon and the team with all our commercial and sponsorship plans.
Craig’s involvement with Buckhurst Hill started when he was a player, then becoming a youth manager for many years with his son, Archie in his team.
Craig has been instrumental in the growth of our youth and mini soccer, including setting up our Girl’s section which has been a huge success. Today Craig is the club’s youth secretary as well as refereeing on a Sunday, organising all our fixtures for our youth teams and supporting our groundsman, another person that spends a lot of time at the club doing one job or another.
Late husband Kevin was one of the club’s first managers and Janet served as club secretary at youth and senior level for many years. She has been a fundraiser, committee member and has worked for many years in our T-bar on a Sunday serving all your favourites.
Jan now loves watching the first team play and getting behind the boys.
Child Welfare Officer/Trustee
Another long serving committee member who has been a youth manager, groundsman and club chairman.
The clubhouse is named after him & Ray as the Sherrin/Richbell Clubhouse, after they were hugely instrumental in getting it built.
His son has played for the club, coached for the club and played for the first team. Still actively involved with the club as our child welfare officer and referees on a Sunday.
Manager Mark Williams has risen through the ranks; having started off as a manager for an U8 side, Mark then went on to manage a number of sides right up to the U18s becoming one of the most successful youth managers at the club in the process as he won a lot of titles and cups. He was then asked to become the first team manager and has been instrumental in the restructuring of our senior structure, utilising a club ethos of producing home grown talent, recruiting and developing from within the club.
I’ve been involved with the club since 2014 taking my sons U8’s team. Still involved with coaching now with the same team at U16’s.
All my 4 children have been part of the club, 2 boys and 2 girls.
I joined the committee to help out on the commercial side 4 years back and have helped bring in multiple sponsors to help different areas from the youth to the senior section.
I’ve been involved with Buckhurst Hill FC since my son joined the club in 2012 initially coaching and then after qualifying as a referee at the club.
I initially joined the committee as a youth representative and currently deal with all discipline within the youth section.
