Club Appointment – Head of Junior Football

We are delighted to announce the appointment of Neil Drummond as Head of Junior Football at Heaton Stannington FC.

Neil comes to the Stan with a huge wealth of experience in the Junior game – having spent the last 10 years at Killingworth Young Peoples Club. He has worked in a number of roles including a Coach, Secretary, Chairman and will remain as a fully committed Trustee of the club. Neil has helped to significantly grow many areas including development of teams, facilities and working practices.

Both Neil and his Dad are currently season ticket holders at Grounsell Park and are already familiar faces around the Club. We are delighted to have someone of Neil’s experience on board to help guide us through the process of developing this new part of our Club.

On his appointment, Neil said:

“As a staunch supporter of the Stan I am delighted to have been asked to support the implementation of the Junior set up. The family aspect of the club is what made we want to be involved, both me and my Dad have been welcome since we set foot in ground to watch Senior football again almost 3 years ago now. I will give 100% and use my extensive knowledge to help get the juniors off the ground and enable the Stan to be successful in setting up a long-lasting Junior Club.”

Welcome to the Stan, Neil!
