Shildon AFC Appoint New Manager

Following the shock resignation of Ian Clark, Shildon AFC are pleased to reveal their interim management structure.  Former Player, Chris Hughes has accepted the position of First Team Manager for the rest of the season, when the position will be reviewed.  Chris will be supported by Alex White who will be Player Coach, whilst Chris and the Club actively look to reinforce the management team over the coming weeks.

Chris said “Thank you to the players, supporters and board members who have made me feel welcome since I returned to the club.  I am really looking forward to continuing the work that has been started with the players.  It is important we have some consistency for the club now so that we can get the results we need to move up the table.  In the short time I have been back at Shildon, it is clear to see there is a strong group of players who want to do well for the club.  It is important we use their togetherness and abilities to build on Tuesday night.  All of the focus is now on getting a positive result this weekend.”

David Dent, Chairman of Shildon AFC said “ This has been an unsettling 48 hours for everyone at the Club. I’m absolutely delighted therefore that Chris feels now is the time for him to step up into this position to take the Club forward.  I’ve known him for a number of years, founded the Clubs Development Centre with him, seen him progress from player, to coach and latterly to Assistant Manager and feel it’s time for him to have the opportunity to manage the Club.  He’s an A licence Coach, was highly thought of at Middlesbrough FC’s Academy, he has the respect of the players, but more importantly he has integrity and I trust him implicitly.  I know he believes in the Club’s development plan and is here for the right reasons.  Now is the time for stability, Chris will therefore get the backing of myself and the Board, and the resources at his disposal to establish ourselves within the NPL this season and hopefully he will continue in the role for many years to come.”

Alex White Pens New Deal

Shildon centre half Alex White has signed a new contract until the end of the 23/24 Season.

Alex has made 25 appearances for Shildon over the last 2 seasons (chipping in with 3 goals).  Much of his first season with Shildon (4 appearances) was lost due lack of games because of the pandemic and a serious injury from which he is now fully recovered.  Alex has become an integral part of the squad in our first season in the Northern Premier League East and an important part of the future plans of the Club.
