Former Torquay United player and manager Kevin Nicholson has joined Mousehole AFC as player/manager and director of Endorsed Academy.
He will replace current player/manager Calum Elliot, who will continue as a player until the end of October before he needs to return with his family to his native Edinburgh. The club wanted to put on record their thanks for Calum’s hard work and his ongoing support in this transitional process.
Adam Fletcher, Head of Football Operations at Mousehole, said: “Kevin Nicholson is an outstanding appointment: he brings a wealth of experience and ambition, coupled with a winning mentality, and his great energy, leadership and management skills will be felt throughout the club and Endorsed Academy. At the same time there’s no doubt Kevin’s decision to join us reinforces our growing reputation as a progressive club who do not intend to stand still.”
Speaking of his new role, Nicholson explained: “I am incredibly enthusiastic about the potential at Mousehole. I was taken aback by the club’s footballing philosophy, coaching set-up, use of technology, committee support, infrastructure, fantastic Academy and forward-thinking ambition. I’m incredibly excited to take it all to the next level. I’m also buzzing to be back playing!”
