Under 21 management team depart for pastures new

Under 21 manager Neil Beasley and his assistant Corey Mallen have today made the decision to leave Brocton for pastures new.


Neil made the following statement


"I’ve made the very difficult decision to move on from Brocton following the end of the season.


Words can’t describe how much I have enjoyed the last three seasons and I’ve learnt so much. I am truly grateful for the opportunity the club gave me.

I’ve had so many good memories, met some amazing people and had great experiences.

The amount of players we’ve seen transition to the first team in this time is by far my proudest achievement.

I would like to place on record my thanks to the committee, players, staff and everyone I have met during my time at the club.

I wish the club all the best for the future. Neil"


Corey thanked everyone for his time at the club


"After having some time to reflect and with the club needing to know my stance for next season, I have decided and have let Alex know that I will be leaving the club, standing down as Assistant Manager of the u21’s.


I just want to thank you and the rest of the committee at Brocton for allowing me to have had this opportunity so early on in my career. However, with my injury, Neil’s situation and thinking of what’s best for me personally, it feels like the right time to move on and start a new chapter.

Please pass on my thanks to the rest of the committee, you have all made a wonderful club and none of the opportunities my lads or I have had would have been possible without them.

Being a player and member of staff throughout my time at the club, I have been able to see that the club is going in the right direction and I wish you all nothing but the best for the future.

Football is a strange game and I hope our paths will cross in the future.

Once again thank you to Brocton for allowing me to have had such a wonderful opportunity."


Vice-Chairman Brian Townsend thanked both of them for their sterling service at the club


"I thank you both for your work with the U21's this and previous seasons. You are leaving the club with the u21 group of players stronger and better for the work you have done.


We realise it is not an easy job to run a team which is an immediate feed into the first team and as you said at the presentation event, you were particularly proud of the number of players that had successfully stepped up this year.


We will miss you both, but as you have decided to move on to progress future opportunities and the next stage of your own development we can only wish you the best.


I'm sure we will see you around the football scene in the near future but thank you both for your time and effort whilst at Brocton Football Club"


Good luck to Neil and Corey, the place will certainly be a lot quieter without you around
