Priorymen appoint Davey Onions as Assistant Manager for new season
Guisborough Town is delighted to announce that former KGV fans’ favourite Davey Onions has been appointed Assistant Manager to First Team Manager Gary Forster for the coming 2019/20 season.
Davey enjoyed a successful playing career with the Priorymen spanning several seasons until his retirement at the end of the 2017/18 season.
He made his name as a prolific scorer with a personal tally of 104 goals for Guisborough, making him the club’s second highest all-time scorer.
In his new role, Davey will bring a wealth of experience and knowledge of the Northern League football scene in support of First Team boss Gary Forster.
Gary commented: “I’ve been looking for a suitable No 2 for some time to help share the team management workload so I am delighted to welcome Davey back into the club.
“Davey is someone I have known on a personal level for well over 20 years both as a good pal and through our involvement over many seasons in football on Teesside.
“I know that Davey will bring passion, drive and determination to the role I envisage for him at Guisborough Town. I have been particularly impressed with how well Davey works with younger players, so I have no doubt that he will be an asset to the club,” added Gary.
Meanwhile, Chris Fairless has left Guisborough Town coaching staff on totally amicable terms to pursue other interests in the game.
