Mark Wilson

 

Earlier this week the club reluctantly accepted the resignation of First Team Manager Mark Wilson.

 

Mark took over the role at the end of September 2014 when the team were struggling at the foot of the table. He quickly turned fortunes around and led his side to a mid-table finish in the Midland Football League Premier Division and an appearance in the League Cup Final at Walsall's Bescot Stadium.

 

During the close season he was instrumental in setting up a new Reserve team which, under the management of Mick Wood and Mark Yeomans, has proved extremely successful with a number of players stepping up to play First Team football.

 

There is no doubt that Mark leaves the club in a far better position than it was fifteen months ago when he joined, and the club would like to place on record its appreciation and thanks for the time and 100% effort he has put in.

 

First team managerial duties have been taken over by Danny Martin, Mark Grimley and Carl Allen until the end of the season.
