Steve Wales moves on

Popular club first team coach Steve Wales is stepping down from his role this week.

Manager Andy Leese said “Steve’s work and family demands have changed considerably this year, and so his departure has been planned for a while. It is sad to see him go, as his input each week is invaluable.

“I’ve worked with Steve as a player and coach for many years so, on a personal level, it’s a real disappointment to see him go. He has served the game well over the last twenty years or so.

“It’s a pity we didn’t get to see the best of him as a player when he signed in 2017, but injury took its toll. He still looks great in training when he joins in! Hopefully Steve will assist us with some scouting work but, with a young family, his time is limited. Maz and I will continue as we are for now and will look to add to the management team if we can. We have one or two options to explore, and will update everyone as and when we do make any changes”.

All the best, Steve!
