The club are extremely grateful for the 8 years of voluntary service that Tony has given. Throughout his time as part of the coaching team with Wanderers, Tony has overseen three promotion’s, the first of these achieved with victory in the Ryman South Division play-offs at the end of Tony’s first season with the club in 2016/17. Winning the Isthmian Premier Division outright by a record number of points in 2018/19 and securing promotion to the National League in the most dramatic of play-off finals in 2021/22 subsequently followed, as well as seeing the club lift the Surrey Senior Cup for the very first time at the end of that same season.

Looking back on his time with Wanderers, Tony says:

“I’m proud to have been part of the Dorking Wanderers story these past eight years and have some great memories, too many to pick just one! It’s a very special club with great people, many of whom I can now call friends. My working life has changed recently and this has limited the time I can dedicate to my role, so I believe now is a good time to pass on the baton. I’m sure the club will continue to go from strength to strength and will achieve the ambition of promotion to the EFL in the not too distant future. So for now I say, ‘au revoir’ and thank you for the memories!”

Goalkeeper Slav Huk has worked very closely with Tony throughout his time at the football club, and adds:

“I want to thank Tony for all the hard work he has put in over the years we have worked together. We have experienced great wins and promotions. I really appreciate all the help and hard work he puts into training, and his advice on and off the field throughout has made me become a better goalkeeper and improve as we’ve moved through the divisions – I would not be where I am in football today without his help. I am very sad to see him go but I wish him all the best in his career and we will definitely stay in touch.”

Chairman and Manager Marc White is very grateful for Tony’s dedication and contribution to the football club over the years, adding:

“Tony has been integral in Dorking Wanderers success. He has been with us 8 years, showing uber commitment to the club. He will always remain part of the Wanderers family, both Tony and his partner Kim are welcome at the club at any time, they have been a massive part of our journey, and a massive part of our success. Tony is leaving the club to pursue new business ventures, I’m very sad to see him go but wish him all the very best moving forward.”
