Bumped into our number 10 at Virgin Active in Thundersley, and he very kindly posed for a picture and had a quick chat - easier to report with bullet points like Uncle Ron:

* Completed his A licence in Scotland (very hard as on astroturf and out on the pitch about 4 hours a day) - nothing untoward about that, only that the trainer moved from the FAI to the SFA hence why he went there.

* He ain't going anywhere (more on that later).

* Very surprised about Kevin Keen leaving - held in high regard. Things that it could be an internal appointment but doesn't really know. Mentioned both Dave Huzzey and Kevin Maher...

* Happy with personal performance last season. Wants to play at least another 3 years (he's just turned 32) and has a contract for next season as we all know, but will be requesting another year as soon as they go back for pre-season training. Doesn't sound like he is angling for a move.

* Didn't ask about his personal life but he was chatting to a very attractive blonde on the rowing machines after we'd finished chatting! !

Absolutely top bloke and looked like he'd never stopped training after the season ended. Forgot to ask him about the new striker signing but I reckon he'll still be first choice come start of the season.
