Hart believes his profession as a teacher and the ability to connect with youth will help him make in-roads into the new season.
“I will be concentrating on working on the development of the footballers and working one-on-one with each individual to provide the best support and advice I can,” he said.
“This year was a challenge due to numbers. Next year we will be looking for new players to go alongside returning players”.
