FC United of Manchester have announced that Tom Greaves has been appointed the club’s new manager.
Joining Greaves will be Jack Doyle as assistant manager and Tom Conroy as first-team coach. Greaves, 32, took over as caretaker player/manager on 25th October, following the departure of Karl Marginson, FC United’s one and only manager since the club was formed in 2005.
Since taking temporary charge, assisted by Doyle, Conroy, Luke Podmore (FC United Women’s team manager) and Paul Chapman (goalkeeping coach), FC United have won four and lost two.
“The idea of going into management, once my playing career was over, is something I’ve had in my mind for quite a while,” explained Greaves. “This has come much sooner than I expected, but with Tom and Jack and all the backroom staff, I’m lucky to have a fantastic team alongside me. I’ve enjoyed the experience so far, and it’s definitely given me a taste for more.”
“My approach to football is pretty simple.” added Greaves, “I want to see good, attacking football – I know how important that is to the supporters at the club.
“Above all, I want to see hard work out there, playing for the badge. In my eyes there no excuse for any player to not got out there and give it their all. The fans will back the players to the hilt, so long as they knew they were out there giving 110 percent.”
