Martin Groves


I left the island in 1980 when I was 17 and played my football in the RAF & then in West London, primarily in the Hounslow & District League. I returned to the island when I was 34 in 1995.

On my return to the Island i played for Wroxall FC , Lake FC and settled at Sandown FC

Having played for Sandown, I then went on to manage the Reserves, winning Com 2 during my time as manager. I have also been club secretary so I am Sandown through & through .

I am now the Chairman of the club and for the 2020/21 season have expanded the club to 3 teams, I have a great backroom staff to help move Sandown FC forward in the coming years.
