Men’s Junior 1st team appointment
Charleville AFC is delighted to announce the reappoint of Adam Castle as first team manager for the 2021/22 Season. This early decision will allow Adam and his assistant Darren Hedderman to start on squad strengthening early ahead of next season’s new challenges. Adam and Darren returned to the club last season to once again take charge of the first team following a previous spell in charge. Unfortunately due to covid-19 the 2020/21 season was cut short with the team strongly positioned near the top of the table. Junior training will commence on Tuesday 1st June at 7.30pm in Tim Fitzgerald Park, all enquiries to Adam @ 085-1583759.
Speaking after his reappointment Castle said “Myself and Darren are excited at the prospect of a successful season ahead. Although we were as frustrated as anyone else with the way the league was cancelled, we witnessed enough over the games we had to know that with a bit more work in certain areas we can really push for promotion back to the Premier Division. Charleville AFC is a club that is working extremely hard off the pitch to improve the facilities for all the players and the community as a whole. We want to ensure that we are keeping pace with the club on the pitch too and that means developing local players and giving lads the chance to progress through our youth set-up into the reserve and 1st team. We will be aiming for promotion and good runs in the cup competitions, we hope to provide entertaining football and a place where family members and members of the community in general can come and enjoy a game played in the right spirit in great surroundings.”
Chairman Kevin Buckley added
“We are delighted Adam has agreed to remain on as our junior 1st team manager for the 21/22 season, to secure his services so early is a big boost to the club. We had a good discussion with Adam and he believes in what we are trying to achieve on and off the pitch for the benefit of our members and the community. I know he is as ambitious for the Club as we all are. Adam and Darren bring a tremendous spirit and work ethos to the 1st team and there is no reason why their influence cannot be used to benefit other teams in the club. I would hope other managers will take the opportunities to learn from Adam with his experience and knowledge of the game like they did last season. Unfortunately last season was cut short and everyone was so disappointed but we have enjoyed watching some wonderful football, we can look forward with great ambition to the new season. It is great news that Adam’s assistant Darren Hedderman has also given his commitment to continue working with the club as he is a very valued member of the 1st team set up. We ask all our club members to get behind Adam and Darren to help them in any way they can”.
