Liam O’Neill, a much respected member of Carl Adams coaching team, has left Stratford Town to go full time at Nuneaton Town academy.

Carl Adams commented “it’s a great opportunity for Liam and it will also strengthen our club’s relationship with Nuneaton. We wish Liam all the best and thank him for the great job he did whilst with us he will always be welcome at Stratford”

Liam O’Neill’s comments on leaving the club “I’ve been coaching the full time scholars at Nuneaton Town since November and as time went on It was clear that I couldnt fully committ to my role at Stratford Town therefore I had to make a very difficult decision to leave.

For myself personally it’s a great opportunity for me being able to go back into full time football after such a long stint out.

For the record I’ve had a fantastic 6 months at the DCS, Carl is a good friend of mine and he is one of the most honest managers I have come across and I thank him wholeheartedly for giving me the opportunity in July.

It was quite emotional when I broke the news to the squad at training before the Cinderford game , I have thoroughly enjoyed working with them and they have been so receptive and respectful during my time at the club.

I’d like to think that if I’ve helped in some small way so as we enter 2017 I’m going away happy. I will miss everyone connected with Stratford Town, from day one they have made me feel welcome and hopefully I’ll come back to take a game in very soon. Carl, the directors and coaching team have all wished me well and I really appreciate that.”
