As you will be aware the club has had a change of first team manager since our last game and I wanted to start by expressing my sincere thanks to Craig Picknell for all the hard work, commitment, time and effort he gave this club in the period he was with us. During his time with us, Craig, almost single handily rebuilt a squad of players last season and introduced a lot of young players into Senior football and who, are now, better off for Craig’s involvement at the club. Having worked with Craig he always remained professional and committed and many of the areas that he added value in where never seen so it goes without saying that I respected his contribution to the Club and I hope that we may be able to retain his involvement going forward in a slightly different capacity but thanks Craig from all of the management team and club.

The change brings back a familiar face to the club in Andy Gray, who took charge as the new First
Team Manager last Saturday and came away with a 2-0 win over visitors Borrowash Victoria FC.
Some of you may know Andy from his time with Ashby Ivanhoe FC at the start of Season 2015-16
when he was part of the Management Team and the club is delighted to have him back with us and
we are confident that he and his team will build on the foundations that have been established.
During his spell with the club last time, Andy achieved the clubs highest league position in the East
Midlands Counties League finishing 3rd, narrowly missing out on Runners Up and challenged for the
league all season. Through this position the club qualified for the FA CUP for the first time in which
we progressed by beating a STEP 5 and STEP 4 Club before hosting the clubs biggest crowd of over
800 when we played Ilkeston Town. Andy has been involved around the County for several years as
both a player and Manager and he joins us with a lot of experience, drive and commitment and we
have agreed a clear mandate going forward and one which we are confident he will deliver. The Club
would also like to welcome Andy’s staff to the club for the first time, Pete Dunn and Rich Armstrong
and we are delighted that Steve Guest has been retained as part of the ongoing Coaching staff at the
