Will Griffiths to Continue as First Team Manager


Will Griffiths

First XI Manager until the end of the season

Cheadle Town are pleased to announce that Will Griffiths will continue as First Team Manager until the end of the current season.

Will stepped into the role at the end of October and the six matches under his stewardship has included an impressive 5-0 win over Premier Division Bootle in the Macron League Cup.

Will’s links with Cheadle Town extend much further than those six matches, though. He has been the club’s Academy Manager since August 2018 and is also Head Coach at Little Sports Coaching, a role he has held since August 2016.

He has also played at a professional level too, being part of the Halifax Town squad that won promotion from the National League at the end of the 1997-98 season.

By his side will be John Phelan; in addition to his current role as Football Coach at Oldham Athletic, those of you from Tameside will know his name from his days as Head Coach at Ashton United and his four years as Coach of Tameside Boys.

The club see the continuity in appointing Will as a key factor and look forward to building upon results such as the Bootle cup win.

Will said: “I am very happy to have been appointed 1XI manager at Cheadle Town FC. I am excited to work with a club who share my ambitions, and look forward to a bright, successful future both on and off the field. I am looking forward to the challenge ahead.”
