Junior Premier League

Welcome to the Under 16 Page

Paul is our U16 Manager and hardly needs any introduction as he is one of the most well-known people in the whole of Taunton.

Professionally, Paul runs his own building and window contracting businesses, as well as his own football development centre ‘SoccerBox’ for children aged 4-11.

Paul is married to Kelly. He has 4 children, one of whom is Albe who plays for the Under 16's and a grandson Archie.

Paul rose through the ranks at TTFC from the youth team, through the reserve before making his first team debut in 1987.  He is currently Taunton’s second highest appearance holder.

Paul was forced to retire through injury in 2002. But during his time representing the club, he won 5 Western League titles, played in the infamous FA Vase loss at Wembley in 1994, and was captain in 2001 when the club eventually won the FA Vase, this still being its highest honour. He would probably be playing now if his knees would allow!

Paul was also manager of the first team between 2009 and 2012, a period when the finances of the club were strained and he was only able to work on a tight budget.  However, this did enable him to concentrate on the discovery of local youth players, giving debuts to several youngsters including current player Ollie Chamberlain

It is fair to say that if you cut Paul in half, you would see the Taunton colours running through his core.

Steve has been elected as Chairperson of the board of trustees.

Professionally, he is a Chartered Loss Adjuster dealing with insurance claims for houses, businesses, churches and historic buildings.

Steve is married to Barbara. They have 3 children, one of whom is Adam who plays for the Under 16's.

Steve also assists with warm-ups/fitness sessions for the U16's and often runs the line on match days. He rarely stands still, being one of those mad types who thinks running miles and miles is fun.

He has previously held a voluntary position as a Vice-Chair Governor for a local Primary School.
