“MY GOAL IS TO GET THE CLUB AS FAR UP THE FOOTBALL PYRAMID AS POSSIBLE”


Fresh hope and new plans as club welcomes new manager T


he new man at the helm of Evergreen Football Club‟s first team has described his


appointment as feeling like coming home. Gordon Wallis managed the South Way club‟s


first senior side for six seasons in the late 90s and early part of this century. His departure to join Sun Postal in Watford


was controversial at the time but Gordon feels it has no bearing on what he aims to achieve for Evergreen this time round. He said: “I left to try my luck at a higher level


but I‟ve always felt Evergreen was my home. I had a great time there and we experienced cup and league success during my spell in charge of the team.” The club‟s failure to appoint a first team


manager meant they couldn‟t take part in the 201-2011 Hertfordshire Senior County League. The recruitment of Gordon and his assistant Paul Cotter means the club will go into the new


season with fresh hope and big plans. Gordon explained: “The club has given me and


Paul full backing and that‟s fantastic because we see this as a long term project. “It‟s going to be a big challenge but it‟s one we


are ready for. “I‟m delighted to be given this opportunity


because the football committee at the club has outlined their ambitions for this club including the possibility of installing floodlights. “My goal is to get the club as far up the football


pyramid as possible.” Evergreen‟s Chairman, Ron Smith, said: “We


interviewed half a dozen people for the role and Gordon was chosen because we believe he can take the senior side forward. “He has a determination to create a winning


side and that‟s something we‟ll need if we are to go ahead with some of the plans we have for the club.”
