"With the season cancelled due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, we thought it best that we show our support now to our coaches of the younger youth sides we have, and give them the chance to cintinue the great work they've been doing with our youth prospects for the coming season," said Benjamin Weber. We think continuing with these guys is the best way forward. Continuity with our coaching staff is an important part of our philosophy at all levels."
