Brian Caffarey - 31st May 2008

Kim Grant says that he is delighted to have been appointed as Head Coach of the Club and regards it as an 'honour and a privilege' to be taking up the reins at Kingfield.

?I am delighted to have been appointed Head Coach at Woking FC. I know that the Club has a proud history and I regard it as an honour and a privilege to be appointed to manage it at such an exciting time, on and off the field. I am looking forward very much to working with Colin Lippiatt, Director of Football, and everyone else at the Club in order to realise the ambition of achieving Football League status within three years. Phil Gilchrist and I will do our utmost to achieve that aim. I am looking forward too to meeting Cards fans at the forum at Kingfield on Tuesday evening and to answering their questions.?
