Management Team extend their stay.

Macauley and Martindale commit until May 2019

Witton Albion are delighted to announce that manager Carl Macauley and assistant Gary Martindale have both signed contracts tying them to the club until May 2019.

The duo arrived at the NetDec stadium in November 2015 and oversaw a dramatic improvement in playing fortunes during the 2015/16 season before masterminding an excellent 201617 campaign which has seen the club achieve a Play Off finish and enjoy a lengthy run in the FA Trophy.

“Its fantastic news for the club that Carl and Gary have committed themselves to this project” said Chairman Mark Harris. “We first agreed the principle of contracts before Christmas but since then the focus has been on mounting a promotion challenge. We’ve now nailed down terms and contracts are signed.”

“Throughout their time at the club both Carl and Gary have been supremely professional. They have brought much-needed stability and their quality of player recruitment has been quite superb. Their exploits have attracted interest from other clubs so its testament to the faith they have in what we are jointly trying to achieve that they have decided to stay and hopefully finish what they’ve started” Harris continued.
