We’ve had a busy few weeks despite the lack of home games, and thought it would be a useful time to summarise a few of the new faces around the club.
We wanted to begin a process of introducing new people into the club this season as we look to build up and work our way up the football pyramid. That process is now underway.
Dave McNabb joined us as first team manager in October. He is supported by:
Tim Lees – Assistant Manager
Jack Hook – Coach
Sam Ashton – Goalkeeper Coach
Chris Watts – Analyst
Darren Davies – Opposition Scout
Aidan Bowe and Alan Raw continue to support the team as physios.
We will establish a ‘fan forum’ to allow supporters to hear from Dave and Tim in due course.
We also have volunteers who are intermittently involved, some working with us as part of their university studies.
Stuart Wright has joined as full time stadium manager. He has previous experience in the role at Oldham Athletic as well as experience in security roles at other organisations. He will primarily be supported by Dave Cheshire who many of you will know has been working at the ground most days for the past eighteen months.
Neil Sears is currently supporting us as in the club secretarial team after qualifying with a degree in football business and law, whilst he looks for a full time paid position at a professional football club.
We are also in discussions with someone to assist with our bookkeeping on a part time basis and hope to finalise that appointment within the next week or two.
As previously announced Jon Newby has already joined the Football Club Board and has a remit of helping the the first team manager develop an appropriate strategy for recruitment and retention of players as we move through the pyramid with its different demands and challenges at each level.
These are all costs borne by the football club, which will professionalise the club, relieve pressure on volunteers and reduce costs within the company which owns the stadium.
We would again like to acknowledge the efforts of all of the volunteers who have rebuilt the club since 2019, it really couldn’t have been achieved without the hard work of everyone involved. You have put us in the position that we are in today.
