There is one team at U18’s level which is managed by Club Chairman, Jim Mulcahy, a life long player and supporter of the game and has always loved being involved at any level.
Having started his career as a representative of West London schoolboys, Jim went on to play for QPR (sorry guys!!) and Fulham. He then played for a number of years in the Athenian league (now the Conference) and finished his career at Fleet Town FC as coach and player, after also being player/manager at Cove FC acquiring his FA Level 2 coaching badge.
Having taken a few years off, his wife gave birth to twins, Megan and Ryan. Ryan obviously has Jim’s genes being soccer mad!! He joined the Colts at under 5 level and continues to enjoy playing youth football, thoroughly enjoying his time at the club up to U17 level. So much so, he enticed his dad into getting involved once more, albeit at a junior level.
Jim has managed his team from age 7 to the current U17 squad. Since 2012, he has been Chairman of the Colts and is proud to continue his association with a club, where he had such happy times himself. Jim’s day job is Senior Projects Manager in the Building industry therefore he is well used to dealing with tricky situations and problem solving! Jim has lived in Fleet for 25 years and has had a long and happy association with Fleet Town FC.
Colts U17s Triumph In The SPL Senior CupPosted on May 10, 2016Our U17s squad reached the SPL Senior cup final for the second year running this season. The match was held on Sunday 8th May at Godalming FC against Worplesdon Hurricanes who have not been beaten all season! So we were expecting a competitive and tough game. However, having finished second in the league this season, the lads were up for a challenge and determined to finish on a high. Team spirit was strong and their attitude was positive from the off. Playing in the heat was no easy task but we showed great energy from the start. Worplesdon were a well organised team, quick on the break and scored a zinger of a goal from the edge of the box, leaving our keeper with no chance. Fleet dug in and battled hard, creating several chances in the first half but failed to convert before half time. However, Fleet came out fighting after the half time break and kept pressing and were rewarded with a quick equaliser from Billy Smith. Soon afterwards, Mike Stapelberg scored a powerful and well placed header from a corner. Fleet took complete control and scored a third outstanding team goal with a perfect pass from James Vass up to Michael Colfer who took on two defenders and let fly and unstoppable shot to beat the goalkeeper. 3-1 up and looking comfortable but in true cup tie fashion there was another twist in the tale. An unexpected 8 minutes !!! into extra time, Worplesdon scored from a free kick outside the box and piled the pressure on. Fleet held firm and saw out the win 3-2. A well deserved victory in testing conditions. Well done to all the lads, each player giving their all. A proud moment for the club and team.

Colts U16s March into SPL Senior Cup Final as League ChampionsPosted on March 22, 2015Claygate Royals 1 Fleet Town Colts 2 (aet) Fleet U16s came out overall worthy winners, showing great resilience in a typical and hard fought semi final, coming out deserved 2-1 winners in extra time. The first half started well with an early goal headed in by Sam Warner from a beautifully positioned cross from Ryan Mulcahy. Claygate’s game play was pumping high balls up front for their forwards to run on to score. A free kick inside the half way line for Claygate, high into the box, resulted in an equaliser in the first half. During the second half, Fleet kept attacking, playing possession football, finding it difficult to play their normal passing game out to the flanks on a small pitch. An outstanding performance from their goalkeeper, tipping two shots over the bar and an excellent clearance off the goal line by one of their defenders, kept Claygate in the game. Extra time followed, with Fleet taking the iniative and control, which resulted in a well taken goal by Michael Colfer, shooting across the face of the gaol into the bottom left hand corner. Throughout the match, Fleet’s defence worked tirelessly to keep out the constant high balls from the opposition. Midfield worked hard to support the defence and strikers. Well done to all the lads for reaching the final of the SPL Senior Cup and winning the league convincingly – which is well deserved for their performance throughout the season. The final will be played at Godalming FC on 19th April.View older reports →
