The Squad 2019-2020

Oli Bailey


Young striker who has joined the club last summer from Gosport Borough, has also previously played for Swindon Supermarine and started out as a youngster at Southampton FC. Pacey, enthusiastic forward with a bright future. Scored 21 goals in the 2017-18 campaign, was prolific again last season and is looking to push on again this campaign.

Olly Balmer


19-year-old Forward who has signed from Poole Town, having played for them at the Conference South level. Olly is technically skilled with an eye for the goal, so we are looking forward to him flourishing with the Citizens this year

Jamie Barron


Re-signed from Gosport Borough Jamie has played for Salisbury, Andover, Sholing and Folland Sports. A winner of a Schools National Cup medal. Appointed Captain for another season and a really important player for us. ‘Baz’ has remained loyal to City despite interest from elsewhere

Harry Birchnall


Young Goalkeeper that signed in the summer who we see having a really bright future. He will work closely with ‘Prycey’ and will continue to develop his game with us this year.

Sean Birchnall

Assistant Manager

Joining us again as Assistant Manager for a second season; Sean is the current Manager for the Army FA Men’s Football Team and brings a wealth of experience and coaching knowledge. He has also been part of the management team for numerous non-league clubs including Camberley and Farnham. Sean joined Davo halfway through last season where they created a fantastic partnership and the club are thrilled to have them together again to continue their good work.

Jo Brocksom

Sports Therapist

Jo is in her 4th season now at Winchester as Sports therapist, this is her 2nd season taking a leading role though, has been integral in keeping our players on the pitch and delighted to have her with the club again this season.

Rob Carr


Highly rated winger that has previously played for both Woking and also Fleet Town. Another regular goalscorer with 20 goals plus in his last 3 seasons for Fleet Town. Entering his third season with the Citizens. A personal trainer by trade, Rob Carr is a thorn in the side for many full-backs at this level.

Craig Davis


Player-Manager who came to City from Fleet Town after relinquishing his position as Manager. Took over as Interim Manager until the end of the 2016-17 season before taking over the reins permanently. His playing career started off as a pro at Cardiff City before spells at Bashley, Salisbury, Gosport Borough and AFC Totton. Has won both the Southern League South and West and Premier as a player. ‘Davo’ has had several opportunities to move on from City, including an opportunity at a higher level, but he has shown his commitment and loyalty to City and we are delighted to have him at the helm.

Kieran Douglas


Young Defender signed from the Wessex leagues’ Christchurch FC, where he had been Captain for their last two successful seasons. A tall, strong and composed player who has settled in very well at the club already and we only see good things for the future

Keith Emmerson


Vastly experienced Defender who we are delighted to have signed this summer from Taunton Town. He will bring a winning mentality on and off the pitch having previously won promotions at southern league level for Taunton Town, Poole Town and Farnborough FC.

Rob Flooks


‘Flooksy’ is another former City man that has returned to the club. He left to join Southern Premier League side, Gosport Borough, but after a spell at Privett Park, has returned to the City Ground. Made the central defensive position his own along with former centre-half, Josh Harfield, who has now left the club.

Jack Francis


The current Youth Team captain; ‘Franno’ has re-signed as a Defender/Midfielder having broken into the first team last year. He has played a significant part in pre-season and we look forward to him progressing even further during the upcoming year.

Liam Gilbert


Combative ball playing midfield player in his second full season for the Citizens after signing halfway through the 2017-18 season, previously captain for AFC Totton. ‘Gilly’ is a firm favourite amongst the locals for his tough tackling and he has an eye for a goal from distance.

Ollie Griggs


Combative Midfielder who we are pleased to be signing permanently for the Citizens this season having played with the club on two occasions in the past whilst at Southern Premier club, Dorchester Town. It is great to finally have ‘Griggsy’ onboard officially

Joe Haywood


Defender who joined us 2 seasons ago season having previously been with Eastleigh FC, unfortunately broke his leg recently but returned quickly and showed what great potential he has. Joe scored a memorable goal, City’s spot kick, in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the FA Cup away to Torquay United in the 2018-19 campaign. 

IK Hill


A young winger who has re-joined the club recently from Alresford Town. IK played for City previously and opted to switch to Wessex League neighbours, Alresford Town. After 17 appearances for the Magpies, he re-joined City last season. A pacy young midfielder. IK impressed during the 2018-19 season and will hope to do so again this campaign

Danny King


Left sided defender, the clubs longest-serving player currently and a real fans favourite. A teacher by trade, he has played for Chelsea and Southampton in his youth. Danny reached his testimonial year last season and had his testimonial at the end of the 2017-18 campaign. ‘Kinger’ also skippers the side in the absence of Jamie Barron.

Pete Millard


Someone Craig Davis brought to the club 2 seasons ago and has previously worked for Bashley FC and Craig at Fleet Town, has a wealth of knowledge and provides important information to Craig throughout the season, really crucial member of the management team. Pete regularly watches the development and youth sides too and has a real knowledge of the club as a whole

Simba Mlambo


Also signed from Davis’ former club, Fleet Town. Mlambo has spent the past few seasons in North Hampshire and was an Alton Town player before this. Can play wide or up front and a player with immense speed and power in the air. Another playing starting his third season with City. Simba works tirelessly for the cause and scores important goals as well including an effort at Melksham Town towards the end of last season

Brendan Norris


Goalkeeper that has returned to the club for a second spell. Norris was a Citizen previously before he switched to Fleet Town but the Canadian is now back with City. Brendan spent much of the 2018-19 campaign out injured but will be hoping to return to action soon.

Nina Parkin

Sports Therapist

Sports Therapist who will be working alongside Jo this year on a more permanent basis following sporadically helping out last season. Rest assured she will be working hard to keep the players fit and on the pitch. Nina has worked with Davo before having been at Fleet Town for three seasons during his Management.

Josh Taylor

Development Manager

Newly appointed Development Manager who will also assist with the first team squad. He was the Manager at Cove FC last season and has previously worked with Davo at Fleet Town. A very popular personality amongst the team and management who also brings a great attitude to the club.

Graham Williams


Defender signing for his second season at the club. He is well known to our Assistant Manager, Sean who manages Graham for the Army FA Men’s Football Team. Has an excellent character and is a wholehearted player who will be an asset to the team again this year.
