Colin is the man behind the magic at the Poly. Working tirelessly to ensure that the Club is making strides both on and off the pitch.

Colin does a lot of work that goes unnoticed, much like the rest of the committee, but Colin’s work was rewarded last season when he and Club Chairman Barry Madigan were invited to the ceremony inside Buckingham Palace where Prince William and the FA thanked a number of volunteers.

Geoff Brown – 1st Team Captain & Chairman of Selectors (1’s – 4’s)

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 11.26.49


Favorite team – Liverpool Former clubs – Island Bay United, Miramar Rangers, Olympic AFC (All New Zealand), FC Jokerit (Finland) Position – Striker Poly Honours – Senior Division Two Winner 2006/7, 2012/13; Middlesex and Essex Senior Cup Winner 2006/7, AFA Senior Cup runner up 2008/9

Poly history – Joined the Poly in 2006/7 under the guidance of club stalwart James Black and was involved in a double winning season. Since then I have been involved in the 1s with this being my 9th season at the Poly, however, my playing days were curtailed early with hip surgery in 2010 and appearances are now few and far between. In 2012/13 I took over management of the first team squad and quickly sought to overhaul the current regime following a disastrous season before when we were relegated with a total of only 7 points. A much closer relationship with the 2s really helped the squad atmosphere and we were successful in ensuring promotion to Senior Division One at the first attempt with a final day draw against Ally pally also meaning we clinched the league. We had another successful season last year and were in with a chance to win the league up until the penultimate weekend of the league. This season we are aiming to improve on this and win the league.


Laurence Spear – 3rd Team Captain


Poly stalwart Laurence has been involved with the club for many years. This season sees him take up the reigns of the 3’s following Keith Johnston’s departure this summer.

Laurence and the 3’s are aiming for a top 4 place this season.

Max Rushden – 4th Team Captain

Screen Shot 2014-09-07 at 11.13.54


Max’s first season as Captain saw silverware, so he and his merry band of men look to progress further this season.

Stepping up from the 6’s to the 4’s this season presents new challenges, but Max believes the lads are more than up for the challenge.

Peter Frattura – 8th Team Captain

Peter Frattura - Clubman of the Year


Clubman of the year 2013/14 Peter Frattura picks up a double role this season as 8’s Capt to compliment his role of Fixtures Sec.

Pete works tirelessly through the week to ensure that everyone is playing at the weekend. He’s taken to this like a duck to water, so well that he is now running a team as well.
