Former player Richard Cresswell is to remain in his position as First Team Coach with York City's backroom team.
In March Of 2015, the 27 year old was headhunted by manager Russ Wilcox and due to his experience will continue to carry out his coaching role with the first team. His duties will be to work closely with York Cities centre forwards and to watch reserve games. Going forward he he will support the manager in looking for future players to joint the squad. After a disappointing season is it vitally important the current players and new players entering the sqaud work hard to improve the inefficiencies within the club. York finished in 18th place in League 2 this season.
After a colourful career Creswell went on to study and became a youth team graduate of the Minstermen. Creswell played in four seasons as a professional striker in English football.
Manager Wilcox said: “I’m delighted to retain Richard as part of my backroom team and he is going to play a big role for us this season.
“I want Richard to put all of his experience into the strikers at the Club and the offensive side of our game because it is important that we score more goals.
“On the other side of his role, the part he will play in terms of recruitment is vitally important just as it is for the rest of the staff to keep our eyes peeled for new players. “It’s great that he’s staying on board with us and I’m really excited with the coaching team I’ve been able to put together which will hopefully benefit everyone at the Football Club.”
Creswell will attend games of all levels to seek building a stronger team and bringing in new talent to th sqaud.
This now completes the staffing team going into the 2015/16 season after the recent appointments of Andy Leaning and John Schofield as goalkeeping coach and assistant manager respectively. (Via York Press & York City website 2015)
