Wythenshawe Town are delighted to announce the addition of three new members to our backroom staff.
Manager James Kinsey has refreshed the faces in the dressing room with first team coach Nick Pearce, Match analyst Ben Cooper and Physio Shaq Lampier – all raring to take Wythenshawe Town to the next level.
Kinsey waded through the vast array of talent from the applications, before hand-selecting Nick Pearce to join his coaching roster.
“We had a big number of applicants and we appreciate people taking the time to do so. Nick stood out for us when we met him. He’s got a wide range of experience as a coach and it was important we got somebody in who has the confidence to deliver sessions at a high intensity.
“I’ve spoken to a few people who know him and they can’t speak highly enough of him. We’re delighted to have him on board with us.”
Pearce joins Town with an impressive pedigree – currently a UEFA B licensed coach and
UEFA A Candidate, self-improvement is a huge motivator for this individual. Presently holding coaching roles at Blackburn Rovers academy and Manchester United foundation, as well as being heavily involved with a plethora of highly touted clubs, there really was only one man for the job.
His portfolio would make him a very sought-after asset to any top end club, having spent time with the likes of Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham City, Wolverhampton Wanderers, Chester City Women FC and overseas with New York Redbulls. However, it will be a pleasure to welcome him to Wythenshawe.
“I’m really looking forward to joining the coaching team at Wythenshawe Town and I am thrilled to be given the opportunity to join this progressive and exciting club.
There is a fantastic setup here and I can’t wait to get started”
Match and statistical analysis have become a staple of the modern game and moving with the times is imperative for any club to advance. The addition of Ben Cooper to take on the role will be fundamental to our success for this upcoming season and with strong credentials of working alongside Oldham Athletic’s Under 18s, there seemed no finer fit for the position.
“To get somebody like Ben in is a real find. He’s got great experience doing this type of thing before and he will be able to provide information that isn’t easy to pick up when we are in the moment of games. He will be able to provide us with stats throughout a game and will have the information at hand to provide to players and feedback afterwards.
It’s not something you see a lot at this level but I think it will be a huge positive for us.”
Physio Shaq Lampier rounds off the new set of recruits that Kinsey has drafted in to the team. Currently studying at Salford University but is well acquainted in working with sportspeople having held several roles within other clubs.
“Shaq has a lot of experience in working with sports people in their rehab after sustaining injuries. This obviously stands out when looking for a physio but his experience and knowledge to work with players to prevent injuries will be important once we eventually start. Again, we are delighted to have him with us.”
Once this long break is over, Town will be thoroughly rejuvenated and prepared to continue with the same intensity as we ended last season.
