Chelmsford City have confirmed that Director of Football, Russ Fraser, has left the Club to take over as General Manager at Reading Ladies FC.
Fraser joined the Club back in November 2014 as Director of Football having previously worked for sports app development company, Tactica, and Pass & Move Elite Soccer, where he was responsible for Player Development and liaising with professional clubs for the scouting and recruitment of youth players.
During his time at the Club, Fraser has been an integral figure overseeing all of Chelmsford City’s sides from youth to first team level, as well as the Ladies side who began playing their home matches at the Melbourne Community Stadium during his tenure.
Club Chairman, Trevor Smith, commented on Fraser’s departure, saying “I would like to personally thank Russ for all his hard work and efforts as the Director of Football at CCFC.
“He was always available to help and assist at the club and will be sorely missed. I wish him all the best for the future, especially in his role as General Manager of the Reading Ladies FC.”
