Hampton statement and Dowson quotes

Post by GlenH » Wed May 16, 2018 11:44 am

A bit of background from Hampton on the move: http://www.hamptonfc.net/teams/110868/n ... 06270.html

And some quotes from the man himself: http://www.hamptonfc.net/teams/110868/n ... 06284.html

I have to say that is certainly a ringing endorsement from the club. He sounds like a good man. Looking forward to seeing what he can do!

I love that. Sounds such a sincere person. Leaves you with a nice warm feeling reading both of those pieces - the bit from the Club and the bit from Alan himself.

Does that mean we’ve paid for him?

Certainly gives the impression that some sort of compensation fee is involved.

'the chance to return to Woking'
http://www.hamptonfc.net/teams/110868/n ... 06270.html

for the uninitiated, what was his past association with Woking?

Sounds like a great catch for us though, sorry H&R !

It says the chance to return Woking to the National League. Although I read it wrong too first time.

"The chance to return our neighbours Woking to the National League".

Classy statements from H&R and equally classy exit statements from 'Dowse'. Well done all concerned.
Genuinely excited about this appointment. I really hope it works out for him and us.

Welcome aboard!

Thanks gents needed my specs on

I like his philosophy of 'win on the pitch, the rest will follow'

Focused individual with no fluff about him.
No space for passengers in his dressing room.
Knows the type of player and style of football required at our level.

I like the fact he used to visit the Jolly Coopers, obviously a man of taste 😀

The biggest question is how many crosses will we make next season?

What a gentleman in his statement.
If nothing else the boys could learn a proper life lesson from Mr D. Respect
