White takes the reins

Wrington Redhill football club are delighted to announce that Leigh White and his assistant Mark Brown have been appointed as manager and assistant manager of the club. The duo have been acting in caretaker roles since previous manager Graham Cheeseman stood down in September and have enjoyed the experience so much they applied to take over full-time. It took the board a nanosecond to accept their application and offer them full support in everything they do.

Both Leigh and Mark have had impressive playing careers and their experience and fresh coaching ideas have galvanised the squad and improved attitudes throughout the club.Leigh made more than 250 appearances for home town club Weston Super Mare before moving on to various local non league clubs including Welton Rovers and Manor Farm. Mark also boasts a wealth or experience including good spells at Weston St John and Welton Rovers.

‘This very positive move is exactly what we need’ said Chairman Steve Porter, there had been a bit of a negative mood around the club when ‘Cheese’ resigned but these 2 stepped in and got everything back on track. The players are turning up at training in good numbers with a smile on their face keen to learn. New personnel with fresh ideas coupled with a change in venue for training seems to have brought the players closer together. This has allowed Leigh and Mark to look at all the players side by side and meant that some players have been given a good run in the 1st team having previously been overlooked. They are of course always on the lookout for new talent and anyone looking for a new challenge or a new club would always be welcome here, players of all standards are the lifeblood of our this club.
