BILLINGE FC have announced their new first team coaching staff for the 2022/23 season.

Dave Morris, Mark Filson and Darren Peers have joined The Storks from St Helens Town along with their highly successful U18’s team who will now make their debut in open-age football.

Generally considered to be the most-talented young squad of players in the area they join us after winning the Liverpool U18’s County Cup and having had a fantastic season in the North West Youth Alliance.

The management team will now be looking to strengthen the squad in preparation for the superbly-run Cheshire League, which is a great standard of football.

Andy Vaughan, The Storks chairman said of the appointment: "We have been aware of Dave and his players for a while and when we lost our management team at the end of last season we immediately approached him.

"Dave and Mark's record in youth football is second-to-none and they fit the management profile we were looking for with a local, young, talented, hungry and confident squad of players.

"We are also delighted that Darren is joining us after a season at St Helens Town.

"Having previously been at Billinge for three seasons Darren knows the club well and the club knows, both, how good and passionate he is as a coach and the attributes he will bring to the club."

It is now time for the club to prepare - both on and off the pitch - for an exciting 2022/23 campaign.
