Following one of the most disappointing seasons in the clubs long history, we are still unsure which league our Senior Mens team will compete in next season.

Regardless of which league we play in next term, if the club is to move forward a new approach must be adopted. At the recent Alnwick Town AFC AGM a new committee were appointed and everyone involved with the club is determined to improve performance both on and off the pitch.

In recent days our First Team manager Stu Purvis and Reserve Team manager John Vint have both left the club. Alnwick Town would like to thank both Stu and John for their dedication this season in what must have been extremely difficult circumstances. We wish them both well in the future.

Planning is already underway for the 2018/19 season when the club will have 3 senior mens teams. All three squads will work closely together with the fundamental aim of developing local talent and building on the strong junior infrastructure now in place.

We are therefore delighted to make the following announcements;

Paul Yeadon has been appointed Mens First Team manager. He will be assisted by ex-England U17 captain Ben Webster.

Mark Jones has been appointed manager of our new look Development Squad. Mark will be assisted by recently qualified UEFA B coach Stephen Patterson and former Alnwick Town Juniors coach Andrew Forster.

Finally our new U17 side will compete in the Pinpoint Recruitment League.

Alnwick Town wish all of our new coaches the best of luck for the following season.

Further information and announcements will be made in due course.
