Clipstone Football Club are delighted to welcome Dave Hoole as the club’s new first team manager and Dale Spragg as his assistant.
He brings with him credentials of a modern, successful manager following a spell as the reserve team manager at Matlock Town before he took the first team job on an Interim basis. After one defeat in eight matches moving from 3rd bottom to mid-table Matlock then appointed Hoole as the permanent manager in April 2018.
Dave has also extensive experience in working in professional academies and looks to give youth players with potential a chance. This aligns with the strategy of the club to continue to develop a pathway for local players into the club from an early age working closely with the colts teams and U18/U21s.
“He has a vision of success, knows what is required and we will assist him as much as we can. Early talks have been positive and we look forward to a new era at The Lido Ground.” said chairman Richard Clarey.
Dave will outline his plans and aspirations to take us into the new season even stronger and will hopefully give the club a platform for a more successful season at step 6.
Welcome to the club Dave.
