Frickley Athletic are delighted to announce the appointment of David Frecklington as the First Team Manager. He will take charge of training this Thursday and his first game will be v Wisbech this Saturday.
Sporting Director Spencer Fearn stated “ This is a great appointment for our club. Dave has a fantastic track record and had success at Spalding and Lincoln before joining Gainsborough in the Conference North where he achieved the objective of keeping the club in the division, whilst also reaching the FA Cup 1st round and winning the Lincs Senior Cup.
He also made a real impact at Matlock when he joined last season, a team in a similar position to ours and put together an outstanding run of results.
He has an excellent contact base, promotes the youth players if they are ready and has an in depth knowledge of the league”
The new gaffer said “Having held talks with Spencer, Ryan and Stuart I’m delighted to accept the role as manager of Frickley Athletic FC. Everything just felt right from the outset and you just get a feeling about a place. Having played and managed against Frickley I know how difficult it is to come and get a result here so we need to get that back at the club and make it a fortress once again.
The biggest factor in my commitment to the 2 year deal is the professional environment that's been created to support the 1st team from above and below. The set up is fantastic and is one that can operate further up the pyramid for sure.
Although our situation isn’t great at the moment I’m very confident that with the support from everyone connected with the football we can get our season up and running “
Welcome aboard Gaffer!!
