In Focus: Mahrez Bettache

As stated in the announcement of new gaffer Anthony Gale, we’re delighted to welcome Mahrez Bettache to the Swans family. Mahrez, 25; joins the club in both a playing and coaching capacity.

In his playing exploits, Mahrez, a talented midfielder, started off his career at Fulham; being part of their under-18 squad. This was prior to alternating spells at Corinthian Casuals and Hendon.

In 2017, Bettache joined Braintree Town and was part of the side which secured promotion to the National League via the National League South play-offs.

Mahrez’s stint at Braintree ended in November of last season, with a brief spell at Potters Bar interluding him joining Gale at Walton Casuals near the end of the season.

In the coaching world, Mahrez is a qualified FA Level 2 Coach and is currently the Head Coach of the popular Rising Ballers Men’s team.

The Gaffer’s View:

“Mahrez is a fantastic acquisition, extremely talented with the football and matches it with his work ethic off it. We don’t just want players who are good on the ball, we want players that will show and give 100% in all circumstances and be proud to wear the Staines Town colours. Mahrez is a highly skilled coach who will provide position specific coaching as part of the management team. Don’t be fooled by this young man’s age, he will give this club tremendous value.”
