Whitton United boss Shane Coldron says the harmony within his team can fire the Greens back into the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.

Coldron, in his first management role, after assisting Rick Andrews at Stowmarket last season, has enjoyed a dream start to life at the King George V. Whitton are in third position in Thurlow One.




“It’s been a great first half of the year for the club,” Coldron, who took over in the summer after former boss Steve Jay left, said.

“We’ve got a great blend of youth and experience and we are all in it together. Just this week we had 15 at first-team training.

“The enthusiasm is great and there is a great harmony within the club.”

Coldron, who played for Brantham, Clacton and Woodbridge – among others, during his playing days – feels that his coaching abilities have been helped by the fact that, in his words, he was never ‘a great player’.

“I was ok, but never a great player,” he said. “I honestly feel it has made me a better coach though, man-managing players.

“I’ve learned not to be complacent. If I’m complacent, I think it rubs off on the players.

“It’s not their fault, it’s mine then if we don’t perform.”
