Redlands United Football Club are delighted and excited to announce the signing of Lee Walker as our Technical Director of Junior Football.
This role will be focused on supporting boys and girls up to and including U12s.
President Andy Bradley: "Lee is one of the best young coaches in the game and his local knowledge of Junior football is second to none. Lee's appointment is crucial and is the first step in the development of our new Academy structure which will see Technical Directors being appointed for each age group and an overall Academy Director who will set out the football development vision and philosophy for the club."
Lee Walker: " I am extremely excited to be given the opportunity to head up the junior section for Redlands United. I am relishing the chance to implement my experience to help our future Red Devils learn the game we love and hopefully progress through the ranks and into our 1st Team. In the past, I have been involved in community projects, open-age soccer and a number of clinics, all of which have given me valuable experience and knowledge that will be implemented at the club. After the meetings with Andy, I am excited by the plans that are being put in place and cannot wait to get stuck in."
