Meet the teams: Woodford Wanderers


Jerome Marks and Daryl Kay have been unveiled as joint-manager for the forthcoming season as they look to return to the top-flight at the first time of asking.

Kay has played for the club since its formation in 2008, winning numerous league titles as goalkeeper-turned-striker. Jerome has made a remarkable transformation from ever-present striker-turned-full-back turned centre-back. He has also won numerous league titles on the way to Woodford earning promotion to the Premier.

After flirting with a number of external candidates for the managerial vacancy, chairman Alex Aviram and the board have made a bold decision to promote from within, and have Woodford blood at the helm.

COMPETITIONS ENTERED: Division One, Peter Morrison Trophy, Cyril Anekstein Cup

HOPES FOR SEASON: Promotion via champions

SQUAD ADDITIONS: Ricky Fox, Andy Levy (returning after four years at Sosobad), Amir Nathan (ex-Redbridge veteran), James Ryan (returning after winning the Division One title with Woodford two years ago), Eshed Rahav (ex-Israeli international), Marc Stern (in-law of the returning Andy Levy), Connor Silkman (chairman's first cousin).

WHICH ONE EXCITES YOU MOST? They all excite us!
