IT IS all change at youth representative level for Guernsey football as new coaches have been announced at the top end of the high performance player pathway.

After the announcement of the new pathway in November, GFA high performance youth development director Steve Sharman has announced his new-look coaching team from under-16 up to under-21 level.

North’s senior coach, William Woodford, has been handed the reins of the under-21 team and is now busily preparing to try and win back next month’s Ambassadeur Bowl from Jersey.

And his counterpart for both the under-16 and under-18 teams will be Guernsey FC midfielder and GFA development officer Angus Mackay, in what is his first full head coach role.

Woodford should concentrate on Norths first team that appears to be in tatters rather than taking on another job, or is this a case of him getting another job before he gets binned for his failings in that role. North have dropped like a stone this season, they continually advertised themselves as Channel Islands Champions but they are nowhere near it

Don't worry Kev

Mark Totty will save us all

The combination of youthful agression and Woody to keep things serious.

On a serious note it could work rather well, is this the same group that Mark has led well before?

I get a bit confused with my years.

No doubt True Blue will be along to tell us.
