Welcome To Merstham, Peter Adeniyi!
Merstham Football Club is delighted to announce that Peter Adeniyi has been appointed as the new First Team Manager.
Peter is well-known to Merstham fans having played at the worldflow Stadium and was a key figure in the club’s promotion season in 2014/15 season, when the Moatsiders gained promotion to the Ryman Premier Division for the first time by winning the play-offs.
For the past 6 seasons, Peter has been Player/Manager at Carshalton Athletic. He lead them into the Isthmian Premier league winning the South division in 2017/18 season. They finished 2nd the following season losing out in the play-offs.
Peter Adeniyi commented, “When Merstham came calling, it was not a difficult decision for me. I have some great memories from my time as a player there and I hope we’ll be creating plenty of new memories in the coming season. I believe I still have plenty to offer, both as a player and a manager and I am looking forward to the challenge of getting the club back into the Isthmian Premier. I know it won’t be easy, as there are a lot of good sides in our league, all with the same ambition, but that’s our goal.”
Merstham Chairman, Chris Chapman said, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Peter back at the club. We had some great applications for the post, but given Peter’s success at Carshalton, together with his time as a player at Merstham, it just felt like a great fit for us.”
Welcome back, Peter!
