New   manager   Ryan   Betteney   has   been   busy   since   his   appointment   last   month   and   has   now   completed   his backroom staff ahead of the start of pre-season. Will   Eastwood   will   assume   the   role   of   assistant   manager,   while   last   seasons   interim   manager   Paul   Searl   has   now   agreed to remain in a player/coach role. The final coaching addition is Matthew Dickson. Ryan   said   of   the   appointments:   “The   first   thing   I   wanted   to   do   when   I   arrived   was   to   try   and   bring   some   sort   of   stability   to the club, at a time when there would obviously need to be some incomings on the pitch. “Straight   away   it   was   obvious   the   relationship   Paul   and   Will   had   with   the   current   group,   so   I’m   glad   I   was   able   to persuade them to stay on. “Matthew   is   also   another   great   fit.   He   knows   the   area,   is   well   respected   by   everyone   I’ve   spoken   too   and   is   on   the   back of success at youth level so I am looking forward to working with him too” Will   joined   the   Club   last   summer   as   a   player   but   sadly   the   striker   picked   up   a   serious   injury   which   continues   to   keep   him on   the   sidelines   so   now   makes   the   move   into   a   coaching   role   and   as   a   Club   we   are   delighted   he   has   decided   to   remain with us. Paul   took   charge   of   the   last   10   league   games   of   the   2021/22   season   having   previously   been   assistant   manager.   After making   a   few   appearances   as   a   player   in   the   last   few   games   he   decided   to   make   a   playing   return   for   the   new   season and   after   talks   with   Ryan   has   agreed   to   stay   with   the   Club   in   a   dual   role   that   will   aid   continuity   and   add   playing experience of a good level. The   final   new   addition   is   locally   based   Matthew   who   has   recently   been   the   youth   team   manager   of   Penrhiwceiber Rangers   and   developed   a   good   and   succesful   squad   of   players.   With   his   local   knowledge   of   players   he   will   be   a valuable assist to Ryan. We welcome Will, Paul and Matthew into their new roles at ATFC.
