FC United of Manchester have welcomed David Chadwick back to the club to oversee player development, where he will head up Moston United as well as creating a pathway for academy players to flourish in non-league football.
Chadwick, 40, made 209 appearances, scoring 24 goals for FC United in the club’s first seven seasons between 2005 and 2011. His first appearance for the Reds was in their first ever competitive home game, where he captained the side to a 3-2 win over Padiham.
He remained club captain until the end of the 2009/10 season, with his final match for the club away at Frickley in the FA Trophy in October 2011. Despite being known to mix it, he was never sent off for FC United.
Damian Chadwick CEO at FC United said “We are delighted to have Chaddy back involved with FC United. Having someone who knows the club so well, together with his experience of working with young players and the contacts he has in the non-league game, will no doubt be of huge benefit to the club going forward.
“The recent changes in the first-team management has enabled us to look more closely in the football structure of the club from youth level through to first team, and Dave will be instrumental in helping us develop this further.”
