Otters’ new managers
Ottery St Mary FC’s Div 3 side is to be managed by Graham Varley, while the Division Seven Reserves side is to be managed by Kriszian Kohary.
The committee were keen to say that, although it may seem a retrograde step to people outside of the club (to leave Peninsula League football), they feel that it is a position that they should have perhaps taken a lot earlier and that both the club and new team management are excited at being able to realistically compete and enjoy football once again without the burden of financial pressure.
the new D and E League season starts on Saturday, August 25, apart from Premier teams which start fixtures the previous Saturday.
training at Ottery St Mary starts on July 10 at the pitch at 6.30pm.
All new and existing players will be welcomed. Manager Graham Barley said: “It is a big drop in standard but we are hoping to get some younger, home grown players involved. Obviously those who wanted to carry on playing Peninsula football will go elsewhere.”
