A Familiar Face on the Bench

Carl Withers is now Assistant Manager!

We are pleased to announce that former Moles player Carl Withers has agreed to return to the club in the new role of 1st team assistant Manager.

Regularly quoted as ‘a Rolls Royce of a midfielder’, Withs played over 600 times in a Binfield shirt over several spells at Hill Farm Lane with his 15 games last season taking him over the six century landmark.

Carl also had spells with Flackwell Heath and most recently Bracknell Town where he helped the Robins return to step 4 and reach the Quarter Finals of the FA Vase. He also scored in the 2016/17 Berks & Bucks County Cup Final against us ending a 23 year trophy drought for the Robins.

With's was a big part of Binfield’s successful Hellenic League side at the beginning of the decade winning Division One East by 11 points from Ascot United and then finished eighth and second in the Premier Division in subsequent seasons.

The same season (2011/12) the Moles finished as runners up, they lifted the Hellenic League Floodlit Cup and Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy .

Carl called time on his successful playing career during February of this year just prior to having a knee operation which he has now recovered from.

1st team Manager Roger Herridge was delighted to add Carl to his Management team "With's was a wonderful servant to the club during his playing days , he was a consistent performer & an integral part of the successful Binfield sides in recent times".

He added " Once I heard that Carl was interested in moving into Management , it was a no brainier in asking him to join my Management team here . His experience & knowledge will certainly be a great help to me in the season ahead. I have no doubts that Carl with be a success in his new role , he will fit in perfectly and I am really looking forward to working with him"
