Managerial Change Confirmed

Alnwick Town Football Club can tonight confirm the appointment of Richie Mitchell as First Team Manager on a permanent basis.

Richie joins the club having previously been assistant to Jon MacDonald at West Allotment Celtic for 20 months, and helped to keep the club in the Northern League 1st Division last season.

Speaking of his appointment, Richie said, "I'm looking forward to the challenge ahead. I had a very good meeting with the Chairman (Tom McKie) today and can't wait to get started."

Steve Mullen stepped down from the position of First Team Manager due to personal circumstances. The club would like the place on record their thanks to Steve for all of his work as manager and for stepping in last season to help the club avoid relegation winning 6 of the last 9 games.

Richie's first game in charge is this Saturday at home to Bedlington Terriers, 3pm KO at St James' Park.
