Head coach Woodlock to lead Reds in 2018

WaiBOP Premiership-winning coach Mike Woodlock has been re-appointed head coach for Cambridge FC’s first season back in the Northern League.

Woodlock (pictured), who has coached the club at Northern League level before, has led the Reds to two Premiership titles and a runners-up spot in his latest three-year spell in the dug-out.

Also re-appointed for 2018 is the club’s goalkeeper coach, Kim Brierley, who will go into his sixth season at Cambridge, responsible for developing the club’s ‘keepers, and Chrissy Goodin returns as first team manager.

Returning to the club is experienced coach Ray Pooley, who was the club's coaching director in 2013-14, who will also be part of the senior coaching group, assisting Woodlock.

These appointments were confirmed after a comprehensive review by an appointments panel which considered a record number of expressions of interest from experienced coaches.

Woodlock is a finalist in the upcoming Waipa Sports Awards for the district’s top coaching award and his squad is a contender as Waipa’s top sports team.

Cambridge will have teams in the NRFL Second Division and in the NRFL Reserves League while a third team will become the development squad.

Players' Meeting

The coaching group will host a meeting of players - those who are returning and others who wish to consider joining Cambridge - on Thursday November 23 at the senior clubrooms, John Kerkhof Park, Vogel St, Cambridge.

The meeting starts at 7pm and any player who wishes to know more about next season's plans and opportunities is welcome.

For more information, email Cambridge Football Club and ask to be contacted by our team management.
