FS Glen Hadgraft recently received his RAF Colours for Coaching, which is another milestone in an involvement in RAF football which has spanned his entire career.

As a dynamic, left footed mid-fielder he represented and captained every station he was posted to; and for those old enough to remember them he captained both Strike and Support Command, along with RAF Germany.  Highlights of his playing career include being a member of the RAF Senior Squad for 15 years and  Captaining them to an Inter Services Championship.  He also played at semi-professional level for Fleetwood Town, Northallerton Town, Hungerford Town and Lancaster City; the pinnacle was representing Fleetwood Town at Wembley Stadium in the 1985 FA Vase Final.

As age took it toll he turned his hand to coaching with the same un-paralleled success.  He coached both RAF Leeming and RAF Coningsby to County League Titles and the RAF Challenge Cup. Stepping up a level he guided the RAF U-23 squad to an Inter-Services Title, and for the last year he has been the RAF Senior Representative Team Head Coach.  FS Hadgraft is a UEFA B qualified and FA Licensed coach.

Forward Staneval Sqn are very much looking forward to the CO’s Cup football event, where we feel that FS Hadgraft may get a run-out.
