SaltneyTown are delighted to confirm the appointment of Sam Bristow as our new First Team Manager
Sam, who's playing career at Port Vale was curtailed following a car accident, but took him on to play for Workington, Kingstonian, Cammell Lairds and Flint Town amongst others, cut his managerial teeth in charge of Kingston University. A former NEWFA U19's Captain with experience at various levels of both the English and Welsh pyramid, Sam knows the Area well. He said of his appointment
"Saltney is a club I have known from my experiences playing at Flint Town United. When the manager position can available, I didn’t hinder in putting myself forward for the role. Talking at length with various members of the club, it was apparent to me that the ambitions I have as a Manager and coach match that of the club and committee, therefore it is a great fit for me. Having two very good and well know assistants in Adam and Craig is a great advantage, I have played with Adam at Flint and heard great things about Hetty"
Club Chairman Darren Meredith said of the appointment
"Sam's desire, drive and passion for Management and coaching were clear from the first few lines of his application, and upon his 1st interview this was only re-affirmed. When life returns to normal, and the excitement of the new Tier 3 setup restarts, this is an exciting time for the club and the new approach. Sam has big shoes to step into from the previous Gaffer, but it's also a perfect club to come in and establish and stamp his mark on. We're pleased to be giving a young, impressive Man his chance at this level"
