We are delighted to announce that Neil Cluxton has accepted our offer of the first team managers position at Staveley MWFC for the forthcoming season. Neil was handed an almost impossible task in February when the first team management and 95% of the first team players left. He worked tirelessly to get players into the club and to get some of our U19 and reserve team players into the first team squad and despite an awful run of defeats he stuck professionally to his task. Other managers may have capitulated and ran away when things got beyond tough but not Neil who stuck to his principles. Managing a team losing week after week he saw the Staveley support increase at Inkersall Rd and they have been unanimous in their voices and opinions that Neil should be given this opportunity. He is a an ex-Staveley player, managed our U19's succesfully and works locally as a Sports Lecturer at Chesterfield College and is fully respected in the surrounding area.
Neil has planned the pre-season training and fitness programme and also arranged a number of pre-season friendlies. He will be heading fitness sessions starting in June with pre-season starting the first week in July. He will when the players registrations expire on the 31st May 2013 being looking to chat with the existing players as well as old and new players wishing to join us as once again we aim to be a club pushing for honours at one of the best acquainted clubs in the area.
