I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and all gave thanks to everybody that is close to you. Time flies and now we are all preparing ourselves for Christmas but I can assure you I will be working very hard with my Staff to make contact with numerous players, teams and contacts in preparation for next season.
I shall be returning to England for the festivities to spend time with my parents, brother, sister in law and their 3 wonderful children.
Having been away from them all for near on a year I get so excited to return and spoil them all rotten. I think you have all heard me say it before that family is the most important thing in life so the time I get to see them is so valuable, but they all understand I have work to do and will spend countless hours on the phone or driving up and down the country to watch games.
Outside of family the next most important thing to me is the work I love to do and that involves your football club, my adopted family, the Islanders.
I shall be returning early in January to work a combine to take a look at over 200 players in Sarasota. This gives me another opportunity to take a look at players that I may bring to the Club for neat season.
Along with this, I have the NASL Combine that is held in Fort Lauderdale in early February.
There are also other oppurtunities to scout players that I am still working on and will keep you updated on developments.
Well that's it for now and all it leaves me to do is wish you all a very very happy Christmas.
Look after each other. Love each other and be kind to each other.
Much love to you all.
