Weston’s New Assistant

Weston Super Mare AFC is pleased to announce that Mark McGregor has accepted the additional role of assistant manager to Craig Laird after John Hales moved to Bristol at the beginning of the season.

Mark originally joined Weston Super Mare AFC several seasons ago, but transferred to Worcester City at the close of season 2009/2010 before again joining Weston AFC during the 2010/2011 season as a player. He has proved himself to be a consistently solid team member, and has provided excellent support and experience to the squad.

Mark explained that in order to fulfil the role he will need his FA Coaching B License, and is at present working hard towards this goal.

At the same time, he advises that he is looking forward to the challenge of helping Craig with the team. He hopes that he can learn a lot from Craig but believes that his experience will be invaluable to the younger players.

Finally Mark said that “he is pleased and proud to be given this opportunity at what he has always considered to be his home club which has been good to him.”

The Board want to thank Mark for accepting the role and fully endorse his appointment which will benefit the club and the team.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
