Glenn Horsell

Arrived at the club for the 2019-20 season as U18s Manager and stepped up to the Development role a year later with club restructuring.

Matthew Hampson

Previously played for the club and joined the management team for 2020-21 in order to provide a link between the Development and U18s sides.

Paul Whitewood

Joint Manager

Former Shrivvy player who returned to the club as U18s Manager in 2020-21 and helped guide the side to a fantastic Wiltshire Senior Floodlit League campaign last season. He has now joined the Devs management setup and is looking forward to the season ahead.

Steve Hendry


Has been with the club for many years and heads the coaching department, overseeing all teams at senior level to ensure they are all working to the same high standards.

Matt Chivers


Very young keeper but is already a great shot-stopper. New signing this season and he has settled in well.

George Hegg


George is an experienced defender and has been at the club for a long time. He is also a good leader and has shown this by being captain for the development side.

Jack Hill


Has had a superb start to the season and arguably our most consistent performer, picked up a nasty knock recently but hopefully get him back soon as he’s a rock on the left side.

Alfie Barker


Young defender who can also play as a winger. Great on the ball and has impressed in the early stages of this season. Loves a tackle.

Charlie Sage


An attacking fullback who is good on the ball. Isn't afraid to get forward but also is good defensively. New to the squad this season and has fit in well.

Alastair Moxham


New signing this season and brings real quality to the defence. Has settled in very quickly and will be an important player to the side this season. He has experience and potential.

Ashley Andrews


One of our more experienced players, he's brilliant in the middle with his tireless work rate and talking off the ball.

Joe Kemp


Comfortable on the ball and joins the defence to attack. Young player with a lot of potential. Can pick a pass and works really hard in midfield.

Charlie Hampson


Energetic young midfielder who provides the engine in the middle to break up the play getting the team back on the ball, real potential to really push on.

Matt Horsell


Very established player and has been around the club now for a long time. He has previously played at a higher level and that shows with his ability. A key player for the devs.

James Hirst


The youngest player in the squad who impressed for u18's last season and will be around the development side this year. Attacking midfielder who also works hard in midfield.

Ollie Barker


New signing this season and has shown his quality already. Has a great relationship with the squad and hopes to develop more this year.

Matthew Slevin


Exciting winger who likes to take a player on. Was an important part of the squad last season and will continue to be so.

Kai Richardson


Tricky winger and has established himself in the devs squad early this season. He finished joint top scorer in the Under 18s squad last season and looks to carry on his success with the devs.

Kieran Sutton


Young player with development team experience, very tidy footballer who isn't afraid to go for the audacious and often come off for him. Comfortable through the middle as well as the wings and is looking to have another good season for the devs.

Tyger Hall


This is his fourth year in senior football and he has made a great impact. He has the ability to ghost around players and the brain to release the ball when he should. Exciting talent and bags of potential.

Ryan Bragg


New signing who has really impressed in pre-season. He adds something different to the squad and is a great addition. Previously played for Lambourn Sports FC.
