The Swans are pleased to announce David Ashcroft as Newport Pagnell Towns Reserve team manager
The Swans are pleased to announce former Olney Town Reserves manager David Ashcroft as Newport Pagnell Towns Reserve team manager:
"I'm absolutely over the moon to be returning to the UCL and with such a great club like Newport Pagnell. I'm also excited in the prospect of working with both Lynchy and Dykes and the rest of the 1st team staff in developing the newly formed reserve team.
Newport have been absent from the UCL reserve league for a little while and having managed in this league previously with Olney I know how tough it can be but I'm very much up for the challenge.
I will be working very closely with the 4 talented u18 sides at Newport and helping those players transition into men's football.
We will of course be looking at adding a good balance of youth and experience across the team to ensure that not only are we competitive but we also are readily supporting the 1st team both with youngsters who are keen to push on and experienced players who have been there and done it on a cold Tuesday night in the UCL.
Some of the things I am most looking forward to are the reports and news updates from Mr Beaman who does such a great job on this page.
Also visiting some of the great clubs and grounds in the UCL, and lastly helping the 1st team push for promotion and supporting them with the development of youth.
And of course my first game against Olney...
It's also a great pleasure to announce Stacey O' Neil will assisting me on the sidelines. Stacey and I worked very closely at Olney and you can definitely say we are chalk and cheese.... Hopefully he won't burst too many blood vessels this year.
More announcements to be made on the coaching front soon. It's good to be back!"
