New First Team Manager Appointment

Burton Park Wanderers Football Club are pleased and delighted to announce Chris Smith as our new manager. 

Chris brings great local football experience & knowledge that will enhance the core squad we have.

We endured a tough season that has been a steep learning curve for everyone involved.

We have no doubt that Chris will bring stability and drive to progress the club on and off the pitch.

Having being reprieved from relegation feels like a promotion and hopefully gives us great impetus for the coming season.

Chris brings a wealth of knowledge, experience of local football and on his appointment said ” I am really pleased to be appointed first team manager at Burton Park Wanderers.

It was a very tough and often testing time last season for the club, but that ended well and managed to grind out some good results which has kept them at step 6.

Now we have to work hard on and off the pitch to make sure we are not having this same conversation this time next year.! Gina and Graham and team behind the scenes want a progressive club that is moving forward and have backed me to help deliver on the field. So I am looking forward to getting the season under way and repaying their faith in me.”

Gina Cleverly (Chairlady) said “we are extremely  happy with this appointment, we can now put our last campaign behind us with everyone involved in the club looking forward to better times on the pitch”.

Welcome to the club Chris.!!
