Managerial duo to stay with Uplyme FC...

UPLYME Football club have been boosted by the news that their management duo of Stuart Wooster and Pete Blandamer will be continuing in the dug-out at Venlake.

The pair, who previously led the East Devon club’s now defunct reserve team to third place in the Perry Street League Division Three and to two cup finals, were appointed when previous first team manager Rod Rowe and Jon Matthews stepped down in May 2017.

After a brief stay in the Perry Street League’s Division One drop zone, Wooster and Blandamer guided the Swallows to a respectable 7th placed finish and will look to build from there in the season ahead.
