Football Secretary

Joe Murphy our Football Secretary for the season just ended is leaving AFC Telford United at the end of June 2018. Joe did a great job for us last season and his experience of the same role at other clubs was a huge asset to us. Understandably though Joe has found it difficult to combine the football secretary duties with his full time day job and other responsibilities.

Luke Shelley will be promoted to Football Operations Manager effective 1st July and this role will from that date include the role of Football Secretary. Luke of course already has other responsibilities including Youth, Community Coaching, Media and Goalzone, but for some time he has been successfully delegating some of his day to day responsibilities. This has included delegating some of the community coaching duties in our schools programme to our part time coaching staff, as well as appointing Declan Allen, Pete Field & Ben Sohier to become part time Head Of Phases within the club’s academy programme. Luke has also recently restructured the part time evening role for Goalzone and some of Luke’s other match day duties will now be delegated, which will see the appointment of a new part time Kit Manager, as match day home and away is a very important part of the football secretary role.

Luke Shelley said “ I am delighted that the club have offered me the position as Football Operations Manager ahead of the new season. Having worked with Joe, I understand the importance of the role and ensuring the position is carried out in a very effective manner. My new role will not affect my current duties within the club and I am looking forward to working closely with those involved in the academy and community scheme where we continue to make a huge difference to young people in Telford”

The Board of Directors would like to thank Joe Murphy for carrying out the football secretary duties in a very efficient manner and also to congratulate Luke Shelley on his new expanded role.
