Mossley announce two new directors

Mossley have confirmed the appointment of Callum Irving and Harry Hulmes as Club Directors.

The announcement was made following approval by the FA and the duo will take up their roles with immediate effect.

Chairman Gary Dean said: “Our club is growing quickly and the increase in teams means we need an organisational structure that can support this. 

“Callum Irving is a vastly experienced consultant in football. Formerly with the FA, he now works for the Asian Football Confederation developing football across Asia and will work as the board member for FA and Funding Development. 

“Harry Hulmes rejoins the board after a break. Harry has helped run the club in the past and held key positions at the regional FA. Harry will lead the coordination of our youth and women’s teams as Head of Team Development.

“These appointments increase the board’s skill set and lifts the level of professionalism which should ensure we are able to implement and support all our initiatives.

“Within the main board we now have business leaders, financial experts, maintenance experts, events managers, sales and marketing professionals, football consultants and football coaches. 

“With such a team we hope the off-field activities can be as successful as the football we hope to be playing this coming season.”

Following the disappointment of just missing out on the Evo-Stik West playoffs last season, manager Dave Wild has recruited a number of new players as the Lilywhites look to improve next season.

Arguably the biggest signing arrived last month, with experienced striker Ryan Brooke dropping two divisions from Curzon Ashton to join the Lilywhites. Astley Mullholland, previously of Glossop North End and Colwyn Bay, has also put pen to paper, along with Will Olonzo, a winger, who has previously played for FC United of Manchester Central midfielder Nicky Platt has also joined from Hyde United.

In other news at Seel Park, the club have recently launched a women's section for the first time in the club's history. Ranging from Under 8s to senior level, the section will be headed up by former Curzon Ashton coach Chris Brooks. He will manage the first team alongside Dame Blackshaw.
