September 25th 2019

Lee Cullip and Ed Shone will be taking roles with STYSA ODP for the upcoming 2019/20 Season.

Cullip, who has previously coached within ODP Programs will take the role of Head Coach or the 2005 Girls team “I am excited to work with the players within the ODP Program, the ability to reach out and be directly involved in the larger football community excites me.
