Andy Roff, the longstanding chair of Haddenham Youth Football Club (HYFC), has stepped down after more than a decade at the helm of the village club. He is succeeded by Alex Wagstaff, Head Coach of HYFC's U11 group.

An expanded committee met for the first time under Alex's leadership last week (9th November 2022).

Andy has overseen an impressive expansion of the Club, with 150 more players registered per season than when he took up the role. He has also steered the development of Girls, Ladies and Walking football sides as integral parts of HYFC. Early next year will see the opening of the Airfield Pavilion alongside the new pitches on Tibbs Road.

Alex has lived in the centre of the village for the last nine years with boys in HYFC's U8 and U11 groups and plays football for Haddenham Vets. He supports Aston Villa and never misses an opportunity to tell younger players about Villa's glory years in the early '80s!

Commenting on his new role, Alex said: "I have big boots to fill. Andy has done an incredible job for the Club and I'm thrilled he will still be part of the set up as U9s coach.

"We have elected more committee members to help develop our facilities; maximise the quality of training provision; better utilise technology; involve more people in the Club and ensure our members continue to play in a safe and positive environment."

Newly elected to HYFC's committee are Nick Cuthbert (Football Development), Alex Giles, Nick Heath and Kevin Johnson (Vice Chair) who will join Alex and Gareth Cheeseman (Treasurer), Tim Dixon (Child Welfare) and Helen Thawley (Secretary).

HYFC is open to boys and girls from Under 6 to Under 18 as well as Ladies and Walking Football teams. For more information on the Club, please visit: www.hyfc.club or email HYFCinfo@gmail.com
