I have known Jon for 2.5 years through Romford FC and have worked closely with him on obtaining grants for various projects run by Romford FC. Jon is very good with ideas and has the capacity to follow these ideas through to fruition. He is very youth oriented and all of the projects he has dealt with have been for the ultimate benefit to children under 18. Through Jon?s contacts we have been able to set up Soccer Schools for deaf/hearing impaired children and Special Needs children as well as mainstream Soccer Schools. Without Jon?s input and ability to know where to go for funding it is unlikely that these projects would have seen the light of day. Jon is more than able to put projects together, co ordinate all those involved and produce the finished article. He was also more or less solely responsible for pushing through the necessary work for Romford FC to obtain Adult Charter Standard Club, Holiday Courses and Charter Standard Club status with the FA.
