Newport Pagnell Town Football Club are pleased to announce the appointment of Terry Shrieves as the new First Team manager.

Terry, who is well known throughout the local footballing community, brings a wealth of experience to the role and will be ably assisted by assistant manager, Peter Miller, and Tony Court , who will be coach.

We are also pleased to announce the appointment of Phil Bone as the new Reserve Team and midweek U18 manager.

Phil, who has successfully managed a youth team at the club for a number of years, is by far our most senior coach and will again bring a wealth of experience to the role. Steve Starkey, who coached the midweek U18's last season, will be Phil's assistant at this age group, as the club looks to develop its youth policy.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome them all to the club and wish them every success for the forthcoming season.

Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Danni Janes, John Hill and Lee Butler for all their hard work last season, and wish them every success in the future.

24th April 2005 - LEVEL 3 COURSES AT LEON - Kieron WICKS

As many of you are aware I am running a L3CCF course here at the school over the May Half term period. This has been a huge success with coaches moving form L1 to L2 and now for the first time being able to access L3 locally in MK.

The course dates are May 28th to June 5th (inclusive) and a final assessment in October 2005.

I have a few spaces left, as I am very keen to fill the course and provide as many L3 qualified coaches in MK, until the course comes around again for next season. I should be grateful if you could pass on the dates to anyone who you feel may be able to do the course and benefit themselves, the club and children.

All candidates must have successfully passed the L2CCF and be over the age of seventeen. The closing date for applications is next Friday May 29th.

They can contact me at the school or on 07984 468376 if they would like further information.

Thanks for your attention to the above.

Best wishes.

5th April 2005 -
Geoff Cardno this week stood down from his role as club Chairman. Upon tendering his resignation Geoff issued the following statement.

As I am sure most of you are now aware, on the 4 th March 2005, I served notice to the Committee of my intention to stand down as Chairman of Newport Pagnell Town F.C. The decision to stand down was not taken lightly, but was necessitated by the increasing workload from my business. I continued to fulfil my duties until last night when the resignation was formally accepted. Vice Chairman Matt Goodier will assume the role of Chairman with immediate effect.

I have been involved at the club for over seven years now, firstly as a manager, then as Treasurer and finally as Chairman. During that time, I have encountered many challenges, the most of which I have enjoyed immensely. I would not however, have been able to carry out any of this without the support of the following people.

Matt Goodier - Vice Chairman

Jo Marven - Hon. Secretary

Helan Atkins - Treasurer

Mick Atkins - Commercial Manager

Richard Egan - Head of Football

Darren Hornet - Head of club development (Commercial)

I would also like to pass on my sincere thanks to Club President, Ken Inch and former Vice Chairman, Ernie Print for their invaluable support in guiding me forward in the ways of the club. They have both been involved with club for in excess of 30 years, and this is quite honestly an outstanding achievement, one of which we may never see again. Once again my sincere thanks to you both.

Finally, I would like to thank the following non committee members who have also made the smooth running of the club possible during my time in the chair.

Jo Hornet and her mum Josie for their efforts in keeping the club spick and span, and also helping Helen with the weekly banking.

Steve Handley, for his guidance in the ways of senior football, and his match day crew for all their help with the senior home games.

Our Steward Jim Campbell for bringing his vast experience to the club

All of the youth, nursery and girls managers and coaches for their commitment to the cause. That is where I started, so you never know, maybe there's a future Chairman among you.

Jo, Lynn, Teresa and Cindy for your help in pushing forward the social side of the club and putting in place an events calendar for the current year.

And finally Shane Lea, for helping Mick with the commercial side of the business and without whom I would never have been at the club in the first place.

30th March 2005 - The Under 7's had a great day out on Monday walking out with the First before their game on Easter Monday with Buckingham and then playing a small sided game at half time. Manager Owen Brown commented 'Can you please pass on our thanks to everybody involved with todays game as our players really enjoyed the experience, they loved walking out with the 1st team and everyone made them feel welcome.' Click here to see some photo's from the day.

26th MarcH 2005 - Phil Bone, one of the senior and most experienced coaches at the club has recently had two of his player's, Liam Kelly and Stuart Dorrill sign contracts with the MK Dons and Rushden and Diamond's respectively, and will play under 16's football for these clubs next season. This make's three, the number of players who have progressed to professional club's from Phil's team, following Reis Ashraf who was signed by Coventry three years ago. Phil commented "to have 3 players from Newport Pagnell Town AND from one age group, to be at professional clubs at the under 16 age group is a fantastic achievement. The team is made up mainly of players elegible for the under 15 age group and are this season playing up a year in the under 16 division 1. We are set for a top four finish and reached the league cup semi finals. Hopefully, we will see 4 or 5 others moving into the under 18 midweek side next season."

23rd March 2005 - Rob Barker (Under 15's 'B' Manager) recently sat his Level One coaching badge. Rob had this to say 'the level 1 went really well, loved every minute of it, i would highly recommend it to any one. Met some really good people and most of all, i passed it without any problems.'

23rd January 2005- Newport Pagnell Town Football Club have today parted company with their First Team manager, Jimmy Stoyles. The clubs first win for nearly three months came last Saturday against rock bottom Daventry but this wasn't enough to save his job. Chairman of the club, Geoff Cardno, issued the following statement

'The club's Committee would like to thank Jimmy for all his hard work and commitment over the last three/four years. Having helped stabilise the senior section of the club through what had been a difficult time, his enthusiasm and experience will be sorely missed. Jimmy is a great coach, but for whatever reason it has just not worked out this season. We feel that the results have fallen below that which is expected of the club, and whilst the team have put in some excellent performances against some of the better opposition, they have also lost or drawn games that they should easily have won. The Committee therefore feel it is now the appropriate time to make a change in the management structure'.

Former manager Danni Janes has been re appointed as Manager with immediate effect.

Finally, I have known Jimmy for over five years now and although we haven't always seen eye to eye, we have always had time to talk to each other. Sacking him this morning wasn't easy but as mentioned above, was made in the best interests of the club. I personally would like to wish Jimmy all the best for the future and hope that one day he may do what he once said to me, come back and prove me wrong.

12th September 2004 -
Back in May three teams of students from Luton University made presentations to the Committee on how they thought the club could best move forward. The emphasis of the presentationwas was on marketing and between them they came up with some excellant ideas. The Commercial Committee are now starting to implement some of the suggestions that were made and you wll hopefuly see the result of some of these over the coming months. If anybody is interested in knowing more about the presentations please speak to either Mike Atkins, Geoff Cardno, Richard Egan or Jo Marven.

- The more observant of you may have noticed the new club badge. The view of the Committee was that the old badge was getting a bit tired and it was looking to move the club into the 21st Century. The badge incoperates three designs, different ones used for kit, website, stationary etc.

15th August 2004 -
The Committee of Newport Pagnell Town Football Club are pleased to announce the renewal of the sponsorship deals held with two of our longest serving partners, Waterline and Brian Currie

After a couple of months of disccusions we are able to confirm that Waterline will become the official club sponsor whilst Brian Currie will continue to supply the mini bus. Both of these deals are excellent news for the club, as they will help to consolidate a lot of the new initiatives that have been put into place over the past twelve months, as well as give us hope and enthusiasm for the future.

The nature of the Waterline deal means that not only will they continue to supply all of the senior section with their kit, they will have their name displayed prominantly around the club. Due to the financial terms of the agreement we will now be able to move on with a lot of the works that are required around the club, as well as being able to further develop our Coaches. These works include re-roofing the club house and erecting training lights at the back of the main pitch. This will be invaluable to the club, especially once the nights close in and everbody is looking for somewhere to train.

A new minibus was essential for the club this season, especially with the First Team and Reserves playing the best part of forty games away from home. Nearly ten of these games are in Lincolnshire with other fixtures as far afield as Corby, Deeping (Peterborough) and Holmer Green (High Wycombe). Brian Currie have consistantly supplied us with a bus for many years, and have a agreed to supply a new one for the coming season. Not only do they supply the bus but they also service it, MOT it and pay for the insurance.

On behalf of the Committee I would like to pass on my sincere thanks to both companies for their genorous contribution. Whilst we have managed to turn the fortunes of the club around over the last 12 months, the continued support of our two main sponsors is a welcome boost at the start of the season and the beginning of what is hoped will be along and fruitful partnership.

Once again on behalf of all at the club Thank You.
