First team manager Dom Di Paola and first team coach Jimmy Punter have signed their first contracts at Horsham FC, committing their futures to the club.

Set to start his sixth full season at the club, a period which has seen two promotions already, this is the first time Dom has accepted a contract which the club has offered him.

Meanwhile Jimmy, who was part of the coaching team that helped us conquer the Isthmian South East play-offs in 2019, in his first year at the club, has also accepted a contract of his own.

Dom said: “I’m really grateful for the club to show some commitment towards us. We’ve been together five years and it’s a nice gesture. It’s really much appreciated.

“I love the club, I’m really happy here and it’s an enjoyable place to be.”

Jimmy said: “It’s a good indication from the club that they want us here. I came here two years ago as just someone to give a helping hand and it’s nice that Dom has put the trust in me to do a bit more of the coaching this season.

“I’m really happy to have the opportunity to be here at such a young age, I’m just loving the experience at the moment and hopefully we can kick on this season.”

A spokesperson from the board said: “Dom and his coaching team have achieved so much since they took over the reins in 2015 and everyone at the club is delighted at the progress made since then.

“We are looking to maintain the momentum both on and off the field and Dom has worked hard to strengthen the squad over the months since the last campaign came to a premature end.

“Those of us who have been able to see them in action, in pre-season, cannot fail to be impressed and excited. The fact that Dom and Jimmy have committed gives Horsham Football Club certainty that we will have top quality leadership for the whole of the 2020/21 campaign.”
