Merstham FC announce new Manager
Merstham Football Club is delighted to announce that Tony Reid has been appointed as the new First Team Manager.
Tony is a best known for a long and successful stint at Westfield between 2016-2019 when he took the club from the Combined Counties League into the then Isthmian League South. Tony has also been in the hot seat at Walton & Hersham, Eastbourne Town and more recently at Corinthian-Casuals and Farnham.
Commenting on his appointment, Tony said, “I am delighted to take up the role here. As an ex-Merstham player, I know the club well, but I also know the importance the club places on the ethos and values that have come to represent Merstham FC. The club has endured a tough few seasons, but I want to bring stability to the playing side and I’m targeting a top half finish this season. We know the South East is a very competitive league, so it won’t be easy, but I’m looking forward to the challenge.”
Merstham Chairman, Paul Glasgow said, “We were fortunate in having some excellent candidates interviewing for the post and it certainly wasn’t an easy decision. But we had a list of the football and non-football values we were looking for in appointing a new manager and Tony ticked all of the boxes. He felt like a great fit for us.”
