WINDSOR head coach Anthony Andrews is delighted to have been involved in a positive year for the club but hopes to have more of an influence next season, writes Rob Stevens.

Andrews guided the first team to win the Southern Counties North title despite a disrupted pre-season and a stop-start beginning to their campaign.

He has thanked assistant coach, Mark Pettit, for his support and now wants to build links within the Home Park-based club.

Andrews told the Observer: “I’m pleased to be involved in what has been such a positive year for the club.

“I’m pleased as a coach to get success, but the key for me now is to see how well the club has developed because it’s not all about first team success.

“I’m hoping to have a wider influence in the club next season. I want to be more involved with the second team and build links with the minis and juniors as well.”

He added: “I’m added by the support coaches and staff around the senior side.

“Mark has really benefitted me and helped the players improve. He has been a real positive influence on the team.

“He’s someone I can trust and leave in charge of the first team, like he was on Saturday.

“There’s a little less pressure on my shoulders now so I can do a little more with other teams and build links.

“I feel really positive and hopefully we can continue to build and push on for next season.”
