Moore Leaves the Railwaymen

Shildon Association Football Club can confirm manager Daniel Moore has left the Club.

The club have held extensive talks with Daniel in recent weeks and a mutual decision was taken not to extend his current contract at Dean Street.

‘Bobby’ has amassed almost 500 appearances over two spells with the Railwaymen and has enjoyed success as both a player and a manager.

After moving into the dugout in January 2017, Daniel has led the club to three top six finishes in the Northern League and played a significant role in our first ever promotion into the Northern Premier League.

A historic first season in step four of the non-league pyramid has been a success with the club securing a play-off place and producing some moments that will live long in the memory.

Silverware also arrived in the form of the Cleator Cup, and of course, the memorable 1-0 win against South Shields in the final of the Durham Challenge Cup.

However, after a series of meetings in the last fortnight, a decision has been taken by both parties to bring an end to his time with the club as Daniel feels that a move will allow him to progress on to the next step in his managerial career. His Assistant, Mark Hudson also leaves the Club.

Club chairman David Dent said: “I will never forget how Dan stepped into the job in extremely difficult circumstances.  We have both grown together over the years and with the backing of the Club, he has taken Shildon AFC to a level that we have never played at before where we have surprised a few people in the NPL getting into the play-offs in our first season.  Mark, as well has also played a big part in our success.  It has become evident that Dan needs to move on, which he believes is best for him and it’s also best for the Club. This is the end of an era and we now look forward to starting a new chapter as we look to build upon our great start within the NPL.”

Further announcements will be made in due course. 

Everyone connected with Shildon AFC wishes Daniel and Mark the best of luck in their next venture.

Mental Health Awareness Week

Manager Daniel has sent this message during Mental Health Awareness Week 👊🏼

“This is a good week with the current situation for people to reach out to friends and family to check in and see how everyone is doing.

This weekend I’m going to complete an SAS endurance test ran by The SF Experience Carrying 55lb in weight and completing 64km over 2 days and along the way I’m going to check in with some of the supporters of Shildon Football Club that have been shielding and self isolating.

Now in no way is this a fundraiser but these people are normally up volunteering their own time at the club during the close season completing ground maintenance.”

We have a go fund me page that is helping assist with the maintenance so if you do wish to help us as club then just follow the link and donate were possible with 20% of the money raised also going to Mark Solan trust.

Shildon Manager Celebrates Anniversary at Community Football Club

SHILDON AFC manager Daniel Moore will celebrate two years in charge at the Ebac Northern League club this month.

Moore signed a three year contract with the club back in January 2017 and took the club to forth position in the Northern League in his first season and third in his second.  He also took Shildon to the FA cup forth qualifying round last season and won the Cleator Cup.

Aged 34, Moore is a young, driven and increasingly experienced manager who believes in giving the clubs emerging talent an opportunity on the pitch, whilst maintaining a strong performing squad.   An ethos which has seen the club climb to sixth position in the league table with 12 games to go.

The anniversary falls within weeks of reaching 500 games played for the club and 100 games managed.

Moore said : “I am proud of how far the team has come in the past two years and more so in the last six months.  There have been changes both on the pitch and off the pitch which ultimately improve individual and team performance.  I am already taking steps to secure a solid start to the next season and I am looking forward to the challenges ahead”

David Dent, chairman of Shildon AFC added : “ Daniel has made a great start to his managerial career and we have now put a structure in place where he can only continue to improve. Daniel is aware of the level of investment that is going into the Club as we seek to achieve our ambitions on and off the pitch and he has a major part to play in realising those objectives. I think now we are starting to see the results of this on the pitch and I’m hopeful that this is just the beginning “
