Stuart Atkins: Team Manager
Amersham Town Football Club announces a change of management staff and welcomes new manager Stuart Atkins.
Club Chairman Simon Damery explained. “Following the recent resignation of the 1st team manager, James Hall, we knew we had to move quickly to secure a new head coach. We have a new club strategy which formed the basis of the specification for the new manager. Our search led to several applicants but it was clear that Stuart and his coaching team shared a similar vision to us so we’ve moved quickly to make the appointment.”
Stuart Atkins was equally enthusiastic. He said “I have been aware of Amersham Town as an active and improving community club with great facilities. I was therefore extremely pleased, with my coaches, to be invited to meet members of the committee to discuss the role of manager. It was immediately apparent that we were in tune with their ambitions. I am keen to match the huge improvements they have made off the pitch with success on the pitch, married with an expansion of the opportunities for local players. We have several attractive friendlies lined up, particularly against Chesham United in the John Hearn Trophy on 23rd July, and I am really looking forward to the coming season.”
Stuart Atkins has coached and managed at a number of clubs in the region and, most recently, enjoyed considerable success in the 2020/21 season with Oxhey Jets. He will bring with him as assistants Gary Burkitt and Antonio Cacciapuoti whilst maintaining continuity by recruiting current Amersham coaches, Ryan Gurney and Ryan O’Sullivan
