Development Team Manager Appointed

29 June 2018

The club are very pleased to annouce the appointment of James Irwin as the manager / coach of AFC Bentley Development team 

The new team will play in the Central Midland League Division One

This is another step forward for the club in our aim to 'grow our own' players. The club feel we needed a step between junior football and the first team. Playing in the Central Midland League Div One will be a challenge for the young players, the fringe players for the first team and new players wanting to play step 7 football.

James brings vast experience from managing in the Central Midland League from coaching U19 and junior football. He will be here to develop our young players and also our junior coaches who want the step up from junior football to the senior ranks. He will be bringing some of his own backroom staff but is looking forward to working with some of our existing coaches.

I am sure James is raring to go.

New and old players are welcome at the Green Army pre season training starts soon. Why not get involved !!
