Chinnor Confirm Management Structure - 18 June

ryan davis chinnorNew manager Ryan Davis (pictured) will be assisted at the Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One East club by Gary Marshall and Craig Williams.

Gary has most recently been involved as a player with Holmer Green but was previously a regular scorer for Chinnor in the Hellenic League, while Craig has a pedigree in coaching from a young age and has been a member of the first team staff for a number of years.

Davis had this to say on the pair: "It's great to have them both on board and they have already been working hard behind the scenes to make sure we have everything in good order for pre-season. I think it's been great for Gary to move away from Chinnor, it's broadened his horizons and he's come back with a lot of fresh ideas and loads of enthusiasm. Craig obviously provides continuity from the previous set-up - he knows the players really well and with me being new to some of the players, it will be very useful to tap into that knowledge."

Meanwhile, Chinnor are in the process of recruiting a new reserve team manager. Any interested applicants should get in touch with acting chairman Richard Searl on 07772 642955 or Ryan Davis on 07989 427320.

Pre-season training for Chinnor begins on Tuesday 28 June at the Community Pavilion (7pm start).


Delighted With Appointment - 3 June

Chinnor's new man at the helm Ryan Davis has spoken of his delight at being appointed manager at the Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One East club.

"It's a great privilege to be asked and it has all happened very fast but I can't wait to get started", he said. "I've ​ not been involved on a Saturday for two years but it's been an opportunity to watch a lot of local football, recharge the batteries and come back refreshed. Of course having had such a long association with a club, you always have more than half an eye on results even when you're no longer playing.​"

Davis is Chinnor's record appearance maker in the Hellenic League but regards that as largely irrelevant to his managerial credentials. "Hopefully it means I've got an idea about what is required at this level but otherwise it's in the past - it's the players now that matter. The Chinnor sides I played in were generally tough and hard working but we really lacked creative players. I think the recent Chinnor teams have had more talented attacking players but they've rarely all played together at the same time. If there is one aim for the season, it would be to try and change that." Asked about his hopes for the season, Davis said candidly: "I want us to punch above our weight and see how high that can take us. There's no point making brave statements now that look stupid by November."

Pre-season training begins at Chinnor Pavilion on 28 June, with old and new players very welcome, and a number of friendlies will be announced soon. Meanwhile, an announcement regarding the rest of the Chinnor management team should be forthcoming before the end of the week.


New Man At Chinnor - 27 May

After a number of extremely good candidates were interviewed, Ryan Davis has been appointed to succeed outgoing manager David Ridgley at Chinnor.

Ryan has been involved with the club as man and boy and brings to the club a knowledge of local talent that should see the club keep its existing pool of players and hopefully welcome back others playing outside of the village for a variety of reasons. In the past few seasons Ryan has managed Chinnor Exiles in the Wycombe and District Sunday League leading them to a number of Sam Waters Finals and healthy league finishes. He will continue in this role as many of the players available to him will play for him on both days.

The previous Management team leave behind a team that has cemented its place in the top half of Uhlsport Hellenic Division 1 East and a club that now has brand new £1.4M facilities with which to attract players and push on to the next level.

Chinnor Football Club welcomes Ryan and his team and wishes them a good start with the club and wishes our outgoing Management team all the best with their next moves. Bring on 2016/17.
