A few months back in October 2021, the retired South African footballer, Ryan Botha volunteered to work with HBUFC. This formed part of his UEFA B coaching certificate in 2020 and Ryan worked with the U16’s HPL side.
Ryan made a huge impact on the football team in the short space of time he was with us and his energy and passion quickly rubbed off on the squad. He showed an impressive ability to improve each individual player and to develop the teams tactics best suited to the strengths of his group. The result of Ryan’s hard work was seen in a very competitive league against the regions best academy teams. His brief with the HBUFC 1st team was exactly the same with focus on improving individual players and developing a strategy that best plays to the strengths of the group to give us the best chance at success.
We hope that Ryan’s influence will continue to show itself in the Soccer League on Easter weekend.
