The clubs General Manager, as well as founder member of the club, with over 30 years experience of the game in this country up to BBF-AAA level. Qualified as a coach at BSUK Level 2, Safeguarding Children and a First Aider. Michael has been involved with all junior sections that the club has run in the past, and is now committed to providing opportunities for more children to play the game, in order to grow the club from within. As a result of this, the club has started to see the fruits of these labours as over the last couple of seasons, players have begun to graduate from the junior programme, into the adult teams and with the coaching they have received, are proving several players to the Mavericks squad.

Richard Williams

Richard was part of the group of friends that started the Guildford Mavericks back in 1992. He played for a number of years early in the club’s history, but more importantly, was the first person to kick off a junior programme at the club. After several year away, with a young family, he returned in 2011 as part of the Broadwater Bobcats, that eventually become Guildford Junior Programme that we know today.  Richard’s enthusiasm and skills in getting children engaged in sports, is what has driven the programme forward and has even been know to don the odd Mascots outfit at special events, although please don’t mention the tail of the Bobcat!

Brian Kendal

Another founder member of the club, BK, as he is known to all, is a BSUK Level 1 certified Assistant Coach, and brings over 30 years of British Baseball experience, with Gillingham, Wokingham and Guildford. The archetypical Designated Hitter, he is as passionate as anyone about the future of the game and the development of the club, and can’t spend enough time helping the children learn the game, and get as much fun out of playing it as has. He is also a Dodgers fan, but we don’t believe that is too much of a hindrance to his coaching!
