Gedling Management Duo Go To UniBond

20th November, 2007

NCEL Division One highflyers Gedling Town are looking for a new management team after Lee Wilson and Jimmy Albans moved to Shepshed Dynamo.

After rumours on various messageboards including the Unofficial NCEL Forum, the UniBond side announced the appointment on their website earlier today.

It follows the departure of Martin Rowe from the Leicestershire outfit at the beginning of the month.

There had been speculation that Wilson may have been frustrated by lack of money for players at the Riverside Ground.

But, Gedling Town chairman Roland Ash said: "The reason given by Lee was the challenge to manage at a higher level - that was the only reason and no other.

"However, we are very disappointed after both managers did agree, when appointed, that they would be here till the end of season and beyond.

"It is that part of the whole episode that has hurt the directors and committee but we have agreed with Lee that there will be no mud-slinging by either side and agreements have been reached.

"We bear no malice to him and wish him personally the very best in his footballing time.

"Naturally, we are disappointed he has gone but do wish him well as he has conducted himself correctly."

Gedling Issue 'Support Us' Plea

9th August, 2007

Gedling Town have urged locals to get down to the Riverside Ground and cheer their side on.

They begin their NCEL Division One campaign with a home game to one of the sides being hotly tipped for promotion, newcomers Leeds Met Carnegie.

Gedling chairman, Roland Ash, said: "We have also produced a very good squad this season and have had a great pre-season but we do need support now that local teams have gained promotion.

"We need the local support to allow Gedling a chance to attempt for promotion this season.

"And, with the entrance fee the lowest in the area, fans can be sure of value for money.

"So, all you non-league fans come and give us the support as, without you, we are not a team."

Gedling Preparations On Track

7th July, 2007

Division One side Gedling Town are very happy with their pre-season preparations so far.

Chairman Roland Ash told the Official NCEL Website: "We have been training for two weeks now and the turn-out has been fantastic with some 24 players all involved.

"The management team have been very busy in recruiting players and, with several putting pen to paper, it's looking good.

"The spirit in the camp is excellent and I have never been so upbeat prior to the start of a season, although there is, I am sure, other clubs feeling the same way.

"New backroom staff have been recruited including a new fully-accredited physio who comes from the University of Hull.

"A team coach has been provided by Premier Travel, the same bus Notts County Reserves use.

"Despite a new management team, last year's players will be given a fair chance this season along with the rest.

"One player who has left, though, is Andy Jones who has been offered excellent terms by Belper Town.

"We could not get anywhere near the offer and he goes with our best wishes.

"Gedling are waiting on the decision of two ex-Conference players to sign and we feel confident they will join us.

"The FA and the BBC have visited the ground and gave an excellent report regarding our set-up and I must say it does look brilliant this year round.

"I must say thank you to all the staff at Gedling for all the hard work and, hopefully, we will see more people come and support us at our home games."

Wilson Starts To Make His Mark

28th June, 2007

Gedling Town have signed former Eastwood Town and Gresley Rovers star Matt Millns on a one-year contract.

New boss Lee Wilson has also recruited former Shirebrook keeper Louis Sprigg and Ben Cobbley, who has experience with Rainworth and Sutton.

"I'm delighted to get Matt, there were a number of clubs in for him. It is a great signing for the club," said Wilson.

"I have known him a long time and he said last year that he would play for me, no matter where I went.

"Louis is only 18 and is on Rotherham's books. He is a quality keeper; good physique; kicks it a mile.

"I took Cobbley to Sutton after spotting him with Rainworth Reserves. He has the ability to play at a higher level."

Gedling report back for training today and Wilson says he will look at any local players who can make the grade.

"When you've got no money you have to try to pick up a few from local football," he said.

"I can't wait to get started."
