Berkshire Football Awards supported by PlaySport.
One nomination reads: “Jamie is simply the best manager around in the local area at just 29 years old. Building on last seasons success of a Hellenic League Cup win, his Ascot United side have topped the CCL for 6 of the 7 months and still in the league cup with a quarter final vs Jersey Bulls. The team were on course to win the league and promotion to step 4. The highest the club would have ever played. All with a very young squad and great experienced signing in Ian Davies over last summer. It’s fantastic to witness a manager trusting in young players, watching them all continue to develop and compete at a high standard.”
