Cornelius Nwadialor and TMUFC
Football is a competition and the ultimate criteria of success are results and progression. We all know that those have been in short supply this season and the Club’s senior management has had to make changes that are designed to encourage new thinking in what remains of this season and create a platform for the next. Sadly, in this adjustment we have parted company with one of our most respected colleagues, Cornelius Nwadialor, who has written his name firmly in the pages of our club history, with many outstanding achievements to his credit.
Cornelius first joined Tooting & Mitcham in 2014 to fulfil the Club’s obligation to provide football coaching leadership to Roehampton University. He later took on the Club’s U21 and U23 squads, which he propelled to notable success, among which was an emphatic (and thought-provoking) victory of the U23s over the then First Team in a friendly match, with a display of fast and skilful team-play. This was a seminal moment for the club and a precursor to the decision to appoint Cornelius and Ashley Bosah as Joint Managers of the First Team for the 2018/19 season. In that year the U23s, still under his leadership, won the Isthmian Development League’s Champion of Champions trophy and the re-born First Team got off to a splendid first season, with promise of better to come. Even in the two truncated seasons of the pandemic era, the First Team carried off the London Senior Cup with an assured performance against AFC Wimbledon. A further measure of our success has been the progression of several of our young players into the professional game or into university education. It is impossible to overstate Cornelius’s contributions to all of these achievements.
Our aim for the Club has been, and remains, one of progression both for individual players and for the First Team as a whole. Our ethos is one of merit, inventiveness, discipline, equality of opportunity, and shared commitment. That ethos will be continued by Ashley Bosah as sole First Team Manager and we are looking forward to the challenges of the rest of the current season and to making plans for our strategy for the next.
The club is happy to announce the arrival of Joshua Anifowose, Prince Mbengui & Nathaniel Mensah

A minutes applause before Basingstoke Town match to celebrate former Terror Kenny Holder
Kenny played for the club between 1960-1969 and during this time was also Captain of the team on many occasions.
Listed in the Tooting & Mitcham Hall of Fame he was once described as one of the finest servants of the club with over 500 appearances.
Kenny gained numerous representation honors including appearances for Surrey, London, Isthmian League and Cumberland Football Associations with Southern Counties representative sides.
He was also approached by Bill Shankly to trial for Huddersfield and another for Carlisle resulting in Kenny playing a game for Huddersfield.
Gaining London FA and Surrey FA caps and representing the Isthmian League an England Amateur cap eluded Kenny when he was once invited by the FA to train with the squad, but he declined due to the session clashing with a T&MUFC game, true commitment to the club.
Upon leaving T&MUFC Kenny went onto football Management and continued to play well into his forties, his elusive qualities are still remembered today.
A round of applause will be held at the start of today’s match in memory of a true legend and talented football player.
