He is here to stay.
Singleton Strikers first grade coach Brendan Slade has signed on for the 2021 Northern League One season following a successful campaign this year.
“The club is pleased and excited with the job he has done with the squad this year and look forward to finishing this year with a bang and continuing the success in 2021,” senior president Todd Geddes announced last week.
The confirmation certainly brought joy to the first-year mentor.
“I told the boys that I have found a home where everyone is keen to play and learn,” Slade said.
“That is all I want to see as a coach.”
After a four-year stint as a coach with NPL outfit Lambton Jaffas, Slade brought his expertise with Northern League One clubs West Wallsend, Cessnock and Belmont Swansea.
On the eve of Singleton’s drought-breaking finals, we asked for his opinion on the team to beat?
“We are the team to beat,” he playfully concluded.
