Paul Meredith (Manager)
I played for many local non-league clubs in the area, including Epsom & Ewell, Redhill, Molesey, Dorking, Cobham, Tooting & Mitcham and of course 2 or 3 seasons at Banstead Athletic around 1990. I got into coaching when I finished playing and along with my partner Gary Wilgoss ( played for Carshalton for many years) we led Tooting & Mitcham reserves to win the Surrey Premier Cup. I had brief stints coaching at Whyteleafe and Cobham before I moved to Thailand in 2002 for nearly eighteen years. Out there I had my own scuba diving business. I came back in 2019 and started following local football again, watching a few games, with a view to getting back involved. I think Banstead Athletic is a great club with potential which is why I was keen to join and hopefully put a team together that will represent the club in a positive light and be successful on the pitch, but also happy off it.

He has been involved in local football for many years, where he first became friends with Paul around thirty five years ago. Jim will bring lots of experience and calmness to the team.
Gary Grabban (Coach)
He is a UEFA B Coach and whose playing career as a quality goalscorer included Crystal Palace, a stint in the Finnish top division, Dulwich Hamlet, Crawley Town and a few seasons at Banstead Athletic where he played alongside Paul.

He is a Banstead Athletic legend Keith Ward.
As well as 10years at Banstead Athletic where he played with Paul & Gary, Keith also played for Tooting & Mitcham, Dulwich Hamlet, Carshalton Athletic and he finished his playing days at newly promoted AFC Wimbledon, where he is fondly remembered even today. After finishing playing at AFC Wimbledon Keith was a successful coach in the youth set up at the club for a number of years.
