Carl Dickinson becomes the New Manager

Former Stoke City and Port Vale defender Carl Dickinson has agreed in principle to become the new manger of the club. 

Dickinson will take on the role of player manager at the club when his current deal with Yeovil Town ends at the end of the season. 

A three year deal has been agreed with the club in what shows the ambition we have here. 

Speaking on social media earlier on our new manager said he was “excited for the future” as he looks ahead to his first management role. 

Now that he has signed the deal he goes back to Yeovil Town where he will stay 100% focused on the rest of the season at Huish Park.  

New Manager Search

As we commence our search for a new manager we caught up with Chairman Ron Mcilreavy for his views and expectations.

“Firstly I would like to place on record my thanks to Michael and his team for all the efforts this season, we had some great days in particular in the FA Cup and I will always be thankful for that”

“It is now my intention to restructure the football side of the football club as we look to appoint a full-time manager to oversee all football operations”

“We are open to receive CVs from applicants who have managed at level four and above over the past three seasons or anyone who has played at level three and above over the past two seasons”

“All applications can be sent to chairman@hanley-townfc.co.uk”

Deadline for applicants 21st March 2021
