The football club are delighted to announce the appointment of Richard Cosbey as the new Reserve Team Manager for the 2016/17 season.

Richard will also be assisted by Nathan Gillespie.

Club Vice Chairman, Simon Clark said “Firstly, I would like to place a vote of thanks on record to both Nick Hurst and Jamie Clark for the 2015/16 season and for guiding our reserve side to a 4th place finish in the Kershaw Senior B division” Clark added “The appointments of Richard and Nathan are fantastic for the development of the football club and the young players we already have involved”

The Reserves will still be playing in the Senior B of the Kershaw Division and looking to improve on the excellent placing last season. The football club are looking to continually use the reserve side as a development side for the young players of Godmanchester and surrounding areas. The focus will be to encourage more players under the age of 21 to be involved on a more regular basis and work closely with Matt Mee from the Under 18’s. The club also appreciates that we will still need to ensure that we have older more experienced players in the squad for the 2016/17 season.

Richard has been instrumental in the development of the existing U18 side from the last few seasons and was the driving force behind the creation of Godmanchester Town FC in May 2015.

If anyone is interested in trialling for the football club then the first open training session will be held on Thursday 30th June 2016 at 7pm.

For those under 18 years of age then there is a separate session on Tuesday 21st June 2016 at 6.30pm which Matt Mee will be running.
