Uxbridge have announced the appointment of Danny Edwards as their new manager.
Edwards is a 40-year-old UEFA A-licensed coach who spent the past 15 years as manager of Chalfont St Peter AFC before deciding to leave at the end of last season. He steered Chalfont to Step 4 of the league system in 2011, as well as reaching the third qualifying round of the FA Challenge Cup on three occasions.
He will be accompanied by Fred Cummings as assistant manager, who is well known to the followers of the Red Army as a combative centre-half with 320 appearances between 1982 and 1989.
Club chairman Alan Holloway said of the appointment: “We undertook a thorough and extensive process interviewing several impressive applicants before deciding to appoint Danny. His football qualifications and background in education bode well for our desire to develop a club catering for footballers of all ages.
“Crucially, his values are aligned with our ambition to develop a progressive club fit for the future whilst retaining the best traditions of our 148-year history.”
