Dan Sackman

First Team MANAGER

He then spent 4 years playing in the USA for Stetson University and the Central Florida Kraze, before returning to the UK where he played for Moneyfields, Bognor Regis Town, Petersfield Town, Horsham and, most recently, Horndean.

A defender who usually lined up at centre-back or left-back, Dan was voted the Fans' Player of the Year for the 2014/15 season while at Bognor in the Isthmian League Premier Division. For the last 4 years, he has led both the Portsmouth College and Portsmouth University football programmes.

Dan took over as AFC Totton First Team Manager, initially on an interim basis, in October 2021 and, after steering the club to historic victories in the FA Trophy, he was confirmed in the permanent role on 01 December 2021.

 

 

LIAM ROBINSON

First Team COACH

Liam’s playing career began with Eastleigh before moving to Winchester City. He was part of Glenn Howe’s Blackfield & Langley side that won the Wessex League and the 2018/19 Southern League Div.1 South title – thanks largely to Liam’s 25-goal contribution – before switching to Gosport Borough in the Southern Premier Division South.

A goalscoring winger who is equally comfortable on either flank, Liam re-united with Glenn at the Snows Stadium in 2020 and was an important member of the AFC Totton first team squad when a hip injury and subsequent repair and reconstruction surgery put him out of the game for the foreseeable future. But with more than 10 years of coaching experience under his belt at youth and college level, the Club put him to good use as part of the coaching team, assisting Dan Sackman during an interim period for 6 weeks in October and November. Liam was then confirmed as the permanent First Team Coach on 01 December 2021.

ADAM LAURENSON

FIRST TEAM KIT MAN

A long-term AFC Totton fan, Adam is a familiar face around the Snows Stadium where he has been the First Team Kit Man for 10 years since being mentored in the role by his predecessor, the late Dave Cox. Adam is a firm believer that non-league football clubs belong at the heart of their local communities but they rely upon the support and hard work of volunteers.

In addition to helping out on the gates at Totton & Eling and Southampton FC Women matches, Adam is also a member of the England Travel Club, which has taken him to the World Cups in Germany and South Africa, and European Championships in Ukraine and France, as well as less celebrated footballing territories such as San Marino.

He estimates that he has watched games at more than 300 football grounds across the world, where he is always keen to extend the hand of friendship – whether at non-league level or at major international tournaments.
