We are delighted to announce our new first team managers, Mike Walther and Graham Hirst.

Mike & Graham both bring a vast array of experience into the club and we hope you join us in welcoming them both into the role.

Graham has already been at the Weavers for a few seasons now and knows the club well.

Mike is brand new to Coggeshall but has already hit the ground running with pre season training taking place. We asked Graham for a few words on what it feels like to be United’s new manager:

Am very pleased to be given the opportunity by Cliff Akurang to be joint Manager of Coggeshall United alongside Graham Hurst.

I was looking for an opportunity in the Essex area, nearer to home.

When the opportunity of Coggeshall United came along, I knew there was potential to build a good young side, and hopefully progress players up the leagues.

Hopefully, if Graham and I achieve our aims, we will see players moving every season from Coggeshall United to Coggeshall Town…..

In the first few weeks I have seen the training facilities are good, we have a very young group, but we will keep building and concentrate on what we measure as success

Mike Walther

Also joining the staff team is Mason Sawyer and Marcus Tracey. Cliff Akurang will remain as Chairman of the Football Club after joining Coggeshall Town as First Team Manager.
