Darlaston Town 1874 are delighted to announce an addition to the First Team Management Team. This announcement may come as a surprise to some, but not a surprise to others especially after his success last season.
In speaking to Manager Andy Parkes earlier this morning, who said “We have been looking to add another coach to our first team set-up for most of last season, but we have been looking for the right person to join the team not only knowledge but personality is as equally important. I am delighted to announce that Nick Lewis has agreed to re-join the club with immediate effect as First Team Coach and I know that Nick is excited at re-joining the club in this capacity. Myself, Morro and Simon are as equally excited to be working with Nick and also to see what he can bring to the club”. One of Nick’s first duties will be to organise pre-season training with Mooro.
Nick said earlier this afternoon “It was a fantastic feeling to be offered the opportunity to come back to the club and work with some great people again, and some for the first time. After what the club as a whole has achieved on and off the field this year has been totally outstanding and I know there are a lot of good people responsible for the achievements”.
Nick added “I can’t wait to get going now and hopefully bring something to the table for the team to help push on again every year is going to be a progression on and off the field and I’m hoping to be a part of that as long as possible”.
Nick playing last Sunday for Darlaston Town Vets against Wolves All Stars
Nick Lewis has a long association with the name of Darlaston Town starting at the tender age of 6 years old, playing his football throughout his childhood and youth years for the Club and being part of the first team squad for the 2017/18 Season.
He is no stranger to standing in the technical area. His first taste of management win in the 2016-17 season when Nick was when appointed as the Frying Pan Assistant Manager who at the time were playing in Division One of the Wolverhampton Sunday League. The following season he stepped up to be the man in charge and took over the reigns for just one successful season, because “The Pan” were promoted as Champions of Division One and achieved promotion into the well-respected Wolverhampton Sunday Premier League.
After resigning at the end of the season, after a few weeks rest Nick was soon to be recruited into Saturday football as manager of F.C. Darlaston. Once again, a successful season albeit not with silverware. A third-place finish may see the Bolt Makers promoted into Division One as they await the League A.G.M. to see if promotion has been obtained. They also made the League Cup semi-final losing out to the eventual runners Hawkins Sports.
Nick is certainly a driven football fan, although his football allegiances can be called into question supporting The Wolves !!!
I am sure that everyone connected with Darlaston Town 1874 will welcome back Nick to the club and look forward to seeing the effects that Nick and his knowledge will have on the first team next season.
Welcome Home Nick
