Ramsgate Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Vinnie Jones, who’ll work alongside Warren Schulz as an U23 coach. 

Vinnie will also act as the U18 Player Liaison Officer at the club, reporting directly to First Team Manager Matt Longhurst. 

The Rams boss believes Vinnie’s strong knowledge of youth within the local area will benefit the club immensely.

“Vinnie has been working in the Youth Section and was previously working with the reserves at the club. He’s a local coach with a strong knowledge of the area and the young players within it.” Matt said. 

“4 or 5 of the lads who’ve made the step up to the first team are aware of Vinnie and he’s known by some of the current senior players too.”

“His coaching qualifications stand out as well and those are the reasons he’s the perfect fit for this role.” 

Speaking on his appointment, Vinnie Jones stated: 

“Through managing the reserves in 2018, I feel I can bring experience into the set up. I have an in-depth understanding of who is currently in the under 18’s system and the new reserves.”

“I’m confident in being able to be relied upon to push players from the 16s, 18s and reserves into the first team.”

“The chance to work alongside the first team coaching staff will give me a great opportunity to gain some valuable experience.”

“I am itching to get back coaching some of the boys and I’m excited to see some fresh faces too.”
