Club Personnel

Management Committee

  • Dr. Steven Griffiths, Honorary Life President Dr. Steven Griffiths Honorary Life President

    When our esteemed previous President, Bernard Talbot, passed away, there was only one choice in the minds of most at Hempnall FC to replace Bernard, and that was Steven.

    He has been involved with the Club for over 20 years, managing a youth side when his lads, Tom and James, were in the youth set up. He was, for several years, Club Chairman, before retiring from the post, only to be brought out of his self-imposed exile to again help lead the way, but supported Matt Oakley to replace him.

    He takes a very active role in the running of the Club, and remians Club President.

  • Matt Oakley, Club Chairman Matt Oakley Club Chairman

    Matt has been with the club since he was a boy. He has variously played, managed, been a committee member and has always wholeheartedly supported the club. 

    He was elected Club Chairman at the recent Club AGM.

  • Clare Andrews, Charter Standard and First Aid Adviser Clare Andrews Charter Standard and First Aid Adviser

    Clare joined the Club in 2012 and took up her duties as Club Welfare Officer with great enthusiasm. We are extremely fortunate to have her on board.

    Clare is fully up to date with her training, and has been CRB checked, and also undertaken a 'safegurading children' course.

    She ensures that all of the Hempnall FC staff have the necessary training to fulfil their responsibilities in the Club.

  • Trevor Shurmer, Club Secretary Trevor Shurmer Club Secretary
    Trevor has been with the Club since moving into the village in 1975 - playing mainly in the Reserves, then after a knee injury, packing up, but he ran the line for many years, also helping with the youth coaching, refereeing youth games for a number of years, before having to retire from running around.
    Since then, committee duties have been varied, culminating in taking the Secretary role.
  • Lora Shurmer, Club Treasurer Lora Shurmer Club Treasurer

    Lora joined the committee in our hour of need in 2013, though had already assisted with fundraising functions, and has enthusiastically taking to her new task as Club Treasurer.

    She is a keen NCFC fan and season ticket holder, and loves her footy - being the new wife of Ian, our website creator and sponsor, and daughter in law of Trevor, the Club Secretary, it's a case of 'if you can't beat them, join them'!

    Lora has also taken on the 'Responsible Person' role for our matchday hospitality food preparation.

  • Nick Talbot, Management Committee member Nick Talbot Management Committee member

    Nick came to Hempnall FC at a crucial time for the club, bringing players and an enthusiasm to, particularly, help the Reserves and manage the newly formed Sunday team.

    Nick has run the Sunday side formed at the beginning of the 2016 season, until work commitments pevented him from continuing for the 2017-2018 season.

    Nick remains on the Management Committee and continues to be an integral part of the football club.

  • Daniel Craske, Management Committee member Daniel Craske Management Committee member

    Craskey has been with the club since starting to play as a lad. He has always been very supporitive and helpful, and we felt it was about time he came onto the committee, and was unanimously voted on at the 2017 AGM.

  • Adam Nelson, Matchday Hospitality Manager Adam Nelson Matchday Hospitality Manager

    Adam Nelson is our ever helpful volunteer Matchday Hospitality Manager, and is also a valued management committee member. Adam has been a Hempnall FC supporter for many years, and is a willing volunteer for the Club. He also represents the club on the Village Hall Committee.
