....third-place finish in their first season in the Uhlsport Hellenic League Division Two East, manager Gerald Reilly has decided to step aside from his position.

 

The club were in the lower reaches of the Aylesbury & District League just five years ago and Reilly has been the driving force behind the club's progression since then but following the club’s AGM, he has been appointed Vice-President and will now focus his energies on moving the club forward off the pitch, without the burden of first-team management.

 

Reilly explained that they have come a long way in a short time but that he wants to continue the growth of the club and is committed to putting some exciting plans in place for this to be achieved. He reassured everyone that he will remain just as visible around the club, if not more so!

 

As part of the restructure, last season’s assistant and former Chinnor manager Ryan Davis will take charge of the first-team.

 

Davis joined Long Crendon last summer and having got to know the players over the following season, it is expected to be a fairly seamless transition.

 

Davis told http://longcrendonfc.co.uk: “It’s a really exciting opportunity for me and I didn’t have to think twice when Gerald first mentioned me taking over.

 

“I do feel a great responsibility towards him - I’ve seen the vast amount of time that he gives to the club and the ambition that he has for this group of players to realise their potential. We have a young, hungry squad and they acquitted themselves very well after a slow start last season.

 

“The players know my way of working from last year and I don’t envisage it being a massive change for them but naturally there will be a bit of an adjustment after they’ve heard Gerald’s voice for so long. I haven’t set them a target for the season except to say that I want us to try and improve in all departments. If we do that, with the talent we have, we should have an enjoyable season”.
