What made you choose to join the Golden Troops?
Since original club Penguin army generations before 2017, I had always wanted to lead Golden Troops. However, for many reasons, I never had the chance to do so. This alongside the fact that, I have a strong desire to lead Golden Troops back to glory once again.
What are some of the plans and/or strategies you have for the future?
One of the key plans I have for Golden Troops is to aid their growth. This will be completed mainly by recruiting and mentoring troops, alongside other stuff that I can’t say publicly yet. I have many other plans for Golden Troops including being on the top ten again, whilst being successful in tournaments. There is lots that I have in mind to help Golden Troops grow.
How does being in the Golden Troops compare to being in your other previous armies?
Every army is different to lead in, with different staff structures and environments. I would say that it feels similar to when I stepped in to help lead Fire Warriors. They are still growing to this day but I was happy to have been part of a lot of the growth that had taken place. What stays the same is my high level of ambition to get Golden Troops competing at high levels again.
What is your favorite thing about the Golden Troops?
That’s a hard one. There are many good things such as the people, the armies ambitions and the history. But if I had to say what my favourite thing was then I’d have to say the people. Including troops and the leaders I’ll be leading alongside. Everyone in Golden Troops is a joy to speak to and I can’t wait to be leading them to glory.
What do YOU think? Will Simmonds lead the Golden Troops to a new golden age? Will they even reach #1 on the Top Ten? Let us know YOUR thoughts in the comments down below!
