FC United of Manchester have announced that Neil Reynolds has been appointed as manager.
Reynolds joins from Bamber Bridge and will take charge of the first team after the away trip to Kidderminster Harriers on Saturday. Reynolds, aged 41, has been around the non-league circuit for 25 years as a player, coach, assistant manager and manager.
Reynolds said: ”I am absolutely delighted to accept the first-team manager role at FC United. The opportunity to manage such a prestigious club was too good of an offer to turn down. The journey that the club has been on over the last 13 years has been incredible.
“I have watched from afar but at the same time knowing that the fans are arguably the best set I have witnessed outside of the Football League. Your support cannot and will not be taken for granted. You deserve far more success starting by retaining our position in the National League North this season.
“I have been impressed with everything I have heard and seen behind the scenes which is a credit to everyone connected to this wonderful club. I see this as a major opportunity to put a smile back on people’s faces and ensure that I steer the club in the right direction.
“I am looking forward to seeing all the fans at Broadhurst Park against Brackley on 27th October. We are all in this together and I am certain we will enjoy the ride!”
