Blackshaw appointed as Women’s team manager

We’re delighted to announce that Dame Blackshaw has been appointed as our Women’s team manager.

Dame’s appointment follows the resignation of Chris Brooks last week.

Stalybridge-based Dame started his coaching career at Dukinfield youth before moving to Curzon Ashton Ladies. He then moved to Seel Park as Assistant Manager for the formation of our Women’s team. Following his promotion to Women’s team manager, he has appointed Dave Dickin as his Assistant Manager and Adam Macdonald as coach.

On being appointed as new manager of our Women’s team, Dame said, “It’s an absolute honour for me to be the manager of such a talented group of ladies. Our short-term aim is to continue our good cup run and to gain promotion this season. With Dave and Adam, I have two excellent coaches and we will do everything we can to give the town a women’s team that they can be proud of.”

Congratulations on your new role, Dame!
