Press Release Elstow Abbey FC.
Changes at The Abbey for 2014/15

Elstow Abbey FC are in search of new managers for both the First Team & Reserves next season with Buzz Leeson & Dean Phelan leaving at the end of the current campaign.

Following The Abbey's most prestigious Cup Final appearances in its 94 year history on Wednesday night, which ended in a 2-0 defeat to Crawley Green Reserves, Buzz Leeson announced that he will be stepping down as First Team Manager after 18 months in charge.

The decision has been a difficult one for both Manager & Club but it has been agreed it was in the best interests of both parties. Everyone at the club offers their best wishes to Buzz especially for his future football management ambitions.

Reserve Team Manager, Dean Phelan, has also decided to move on at the end of the season following 2 successful years in charge and we wish him well for the future too.

The Abbey are now currently actively seeking potential appointments to the vacated roles and also considering its approach for next season. The clubs facilities, structure and financial position offers an excellent opportunity for potential managers to progress the club further in 2014/15.

The club intend to make the management team appointments within the next couple of weeks to ensure the club has plenty of time to prepare for next season. Any interested parties should contact the club via elstowabbeyfc@sky.com
