The Club is sad to say farewell to Stuart Revell, who has been ETAFC's dedicated and very hard working Chairman over many years.
Stuart first became involved with the Club about 15 years ago when he first moved to the area and his son Alex joined the U10’s. He very quickly took on the role of leading the 'Heading for the Future' campaign which raised the funds for the development of the new pitches, clubhouse and equipment that we are all now enjoying.
Indeed, the Club owes a huge debt of gratitude to Stuart's enormous amount of commitment, energy and passion. He has been almost ever present at the club (some people even suspected he was sleeping there!) and his leadership and vision has been pivotal in the development of the Club and the huge progress we have made so far.
Peter Nottage has taken over as Chairman, also has a long association with the Club. Indeed Peter, who currently coaches the U6’s, actually formed the Junior section over 20 years ago and has continued to coach junior teams throughout this time. Peter commented, "Stuart will be a very hard act to follow and we will definitely need to rely on the support and involvement of a broader range of people (coaches, committee and volunteers) to continue to drive the Club forward and build on the solid foundations Stuart has helped to lay.
If you think you can help the Club in any way (big or small) then please do talk to your coach or contact Peter on 01347 822948 or firstname.lastname@example.org
