So near, and yet so far

Time to Read – Time Added On – 3 Minutes

Regular readers of NL Week will know my devotion, passion and love for Woking Football Club, and how three years ago, when I was Chairman, we were relegated from The Football Conference (now The Blue Square Premiership) into The Blue Square South.

Now, I am not big headed enough to claim total responsibility, but I know the part I played, the mistakes that were made and most importantly what we as a club had to do about it.

Go again

As you read this, three years later, thanks to managers Garry Hill and Steve Thompson and their players, our Chairman Mike Smith and his Board, and so many others, we are on the verge of winning the Blue Square South. Table

We haven’t won it yet, and we may not – we need one more win from three matches, starting with this Saturday’s (14th April) game away at Maidenhead. There is still a lot to do and I invite you to follow us from wherever you live – Twitter @wokingfc.

Three matches, three NL Weeks, and three learning points from the world of football, which we can apply in all of our lives.

One – Garry and Steve have instilled a discipline into their team that is second to none – every player knows what is expected of them, what they have to do to be selected and off the pitch what they can do, and what they can’t.

So, make sure everyone in your team knows the same – how they personally help achieve the goals of your project/team/company, what they have to do to be rewarded and most importantly what they can and cannot do.

With my love and best wishes
