Under 12 White 2017/18





Peter Brown - Coach

Peter has lived in Felixstowe since he was six years old and has worked for the Port of Felixstowe since 1998 and at 38 has retired from 'playing'. As a player he was usually used in the right back role but could play down either flank.

He played Junior football for Causton Hawks, Felixstowe and Trimley Red Devils, in adult football he represented Kirton on Saturday and Sunday's until breaking his collar bone when 22.

Since hanging up his boots, although playing the occasional game over the years, he has had a season ticket at Portman Road for over 15 years and likes to get to Anfield a couple of times a season.

Since his son Conner started playing he has enjoyed watching him play and see his progression, leading Peter to get more involved by coaching the Under 8's Black team last season and jointly coaching the Under 9's White team with Matt this season.

During the summer he gained his FA level 1 in coaching certificate.

Matt Hunwicke - Coach

Matt is a native Felixstowe lad, married with two children, a keen sportsman who has  played football on and off since the age of eight, plus cricket between the ages of fourteen and twenty eight. At thirty seven years old, 'Hefs' currently the goalkeeper for Kesgrave United and in that capacity in 2012 he took a boot to the face. It didn't do any noticeable harm I'm told although there is no information about the condition of the boot!.

He is a die-hard Everton supporter, but has never let that deter his enthusiasm for the beautiful game. He has coached the Under 9s White Team for the last two seasons and is currently working with Peter for this season. Matt's son Ryan is currently the Goalkeeper for the Whites.

Matt used to think he was loud on the pitch, but then he met Reds manager Anton 'That Guy can shout! Zeffi' was the colloquial term Matt used to describe Anton. 

A very competitive person he encourages his teams to give 100% effort in every game. This season he is looking forward to seeing the boys progressing in their play as a team and getting the results that they deserve.

 The Squad

Conner Brown 

Fearless, tenacious and possessing outstanding dribbling skills, Conner has deservedly picked up a raft of Man-of-the-Match awards as well as a hatful of goals.

Ryan Hunwicke

As comfortable between the sticks as on pitch, Ryan’s strength, composure and distribution have made him a valuable addition to the defensive and midfield ranks.

Ewan Scott

A key player in the Seasiders’ attacking link-up play, Ewan’s array of tricks and close ball control make him a nightmare to defend against and have enabled him to notch up some important goals.

Anthony Ross

Quick as lightning and lethal in front of goal, Anthony is the White’s resident poacher and a likely candidate for the Golden Boot. Nevertheless he has consistently shown a willingness to battle for possession in the defensive half.

Finley Dempsey

A swift, skilful footballer with a real knack for well-timed tackles, Finn’s ability to turn defence into attack with accurate passes has been key to the Whites’ success this season.

Jacob Leslie

The team’s dynamo and enforcer, Jacob’s ferocious commitment in the tackle is equalled only by his ability to weave past opposition challenges. His powerful left foot shots have left many keepers helpless this year.

Lucas Greenen

Having added close ball skills and perceptive passing to his arsenal, Lucas has been the Whites’ most improved player this season, playing an increasingly important role in the midfield ranks.

Tyler Adams

The rock at the heart of the Seasiders’ defence, Tyler’s tough tackling and ability to read the game have foiled countless opposition attacks. Very much a modern centre half, Tyler’s skill enables him to play the ball out on the deck without resorting to ‘route one’.

Alex MacLeod

Versatile, skilful and uncompromising in the challenge, Alex’s ability to pick a pass and evade opponents has enabled him to excel in whichever position he has played – returning a hatful of assists as well as an impressive tally of goals.

Stanley Walker

A mid-season signing last season, Stanley has been an instant success as the Whites’ keeper. A natural shot-stopper, he has racked up a number of clean sheets – demonstrating a particular talent for coming out on top in one-on-one situations.

Charlie Schwer

A powerful addition to the Seasiders' line-up, Charlie's strength in the air or on the deck added to his natural calm on the ball have made him a valuable asset on the left flank.  Having lost him to injury for the start of the season, Felixstowe & Walton Whites are eager to welcome his no-nonsense, tough tackling style back into there line up.
