New player-manager making his presence felt...

NEW Misterton player manager Paul McCormack is beginning to put together his plans for the upcoming season as the club aims to progress in the future.

McCormack, who was a member of the Crewkerne Rangers side that won promotion from the Perry Street League Division Two and also lifted the Tommy Tabberer and Jack Venn cups, takes over a Missy side that finished mid table in the PSDL Premier Division last time out. He said: “Scott Jennings has returned to the club as assistant player-manager and Alex Cossins has come cross from Shepton Beauchamp as an extra pair of hands.

“It’s early days on new signings but the club is pushing to improve facilities so that we can apply for senior football in the Somerset League the following season. There will be at least five added to the squad from last season and we are looking to build a young group that will stay together and emulate what Perry Street and Lyme Regis have done in previous years and progress from the Perry Street League.”

Mike McCormack has been appointed as the new manager of the Misterton Reserves side which was promoted to Division One and will be assisted by fellow former Chard Town player Rob Stubbins.
