Cheddar Cheesenen on lookout for new manager

As has been reported, Cheddar parted with their manager Jared Greenhalgh in midweek, and a statement issued by club chairman Matt Postins, reads: “It is with great regret that Cheddar Football Club have taken the decision to part company with first team manager Jared Greenhalgh.

“Given the loyalty and positive impact that Jared has brought to the club over the last three seasons, this was not an easy decision to make and was not taken lightly.

“Whilst recognising that team have had a number of injuries to key players, the results this season have been disappointing but we believe that it is in the best interests of the club to take action now and start to rebuild our season in earnest.   

“Cheddar Football Club would like to place on record that they are truly grateful for all Jared has done for the club over the past three seasons and really appreciate how much time and effort he has put into the role and to the club in general.  

“He has taken the club to its highest position in the Toolstation Western League for two consecutive seasons and has lead the club into FA cup qualification for the first time in our history.  We would like to wish Jared Greenhalgh well in the future and he will be someone who will always be welcome at the club.

“Shaun Potter (assistant manager) will be taking over as interim first team manager, with assistance from club and team captain(s) Adam Jones and George Booth.  

“The club will now be looking for a replacement who has the credentials, enthusiasm and commitment to take Cheddar Football Club. ”

Any interested applicants who wish to be considered for the position should contact club secretary. Alan Cooper, by email (either via the website www.cheddarcheesemen.co.uk ) or to alancooper7@sky.com  as soon as possible.

A message from Cheddar FC manager

Statement from the manager, Jared Greenhalgh, regarding the match on Tuesday October 18:
“I would like to apologise for any offence caused by my language last night in a highly charged and at times hostile game.
“I let my emotions overcome my judgement.  Although there was a misinterpretation of the direction of my outburst which was later acknowledged by the linesman, it still does not excuse the language.
“Discipline is of paramount importance and that includes non-playing staff.
“Thank you for your great and continued support.”
