Andy Whiteman appointed as new youth team manager

We’re delighted to announce that Andy Whiteman has accepted the role of Manager for our youth team and takes up his new post with immediate effect.

Andy was Assistant Manager with the youth team last season and was our preferred choice for the vacant Manager’s role, so we’re very pleased that he has decided he’ll be able to take on this extra responsibility.

Many thanks to Darren Lyons, who stepped in to run the team for a short period until Andy was able to take over. Darren will remain in his role as FC United’s Head of Player Development, providing a link between the youth team and the first team.

The youth team, mainly made up of 16 year-olds, started their league programme last Sunday with a convincing 3-1 away win at Nantwich. There are some cracking players in this year’s squad, so we strongly encourage supporters to go along to this week’s first home game of the season to cheer on the stars of the future.

FC United U18s v Marine ’A’ U18s, k.o. 2.30pm Sunday 13 September 2009, St Brides Fields, Shrewsbury Street, Stretford.
