U18's Management Team Announced

22 January 2018

We are very pleased to announce the appointment of Matt Ralph and Joe Martin as joint-managers of Corsham Town recently reformed under 18s, assisting them will be Craig Gingell. 

The under 18's squad have been training for the last two months, on Thursday evenings at Corsham MOD. We have already had 22 players attending sessions and there are some very talented players. With friendly fixtures being lined up in the coming months it is great to have Matt, Joe, and Craig take the lead and really drive this forward.

This is a very important group for the long-term future of Corsham Town and to aid the transition from AFC Corsham into our senior teams. All the new management team are well known to everyone at Southbank and they are ideal candidates to make the under 18s a success.

Their brief is to develop the young players so they become comfortable on the ball, with a good game understanding; have a strong team spirit and character; love running and hard work; possess a gritty determination to win matches and a resilience in the face of adversity. 

Upon his appointment, new joint-manager Matt Ralph had this to say: "On behalf of all three, we are pleased and excited to accept this position. We are looking forward and eager to take this fresh opportunity and will do our utmost to make this a success."

Club Chairman Chris Perry said, “These very important appointments for the club, it is essential that we develop not only the players but also managers and coaches, I hope that Matt, Joe, and Craig will be involved with the club for many years to come, they bring a wealth knowledge to the table”

This is an exciting time for Corsham Town and we wish Matt, Joe, and Craig the very best of luck and will give them all the support they need to make the U18’s a force to be reckoned with.
