Prescot Cables Manager Paxton Steps Down
Andy Paxton has stepped down as manager of Prescot Cables Football Club.
Andy joined Cables in August 2015 and led the club to their highest league position of recent years over the 2015/2016 season.
In a statement on the Cables website, he wrote: “It is with a heavy heart that I make this decision. I have balanced my professional life in Nottingham with the commitment of being the manager of Prescot Cables. It’s not been easy but I’ve put everything in to it as it’s the only way I know.
“When any manager leaves his position, he likes to think that he leaves it in a better position than when he took over. I feel I’ve done this, and as a club we have progressed both on and off the pitch. I will be actively staying involved in the club in some capacity, however due to my commitments in work now is the time to hand over the reigns to a new manager, and I firmly believe the foundations are there allowing success.
“I’d like to put on record my thanks to the support of the board, past and present. They have given me the opportunity to manage this club, and I can only thank them for that. I’d also like to thank the players and coaches that I have been involved with at the club – specifically Kevin Jones and his youth setup, Karl Bell and the reserve team, and my management team within the first team.
“Finally I’d like to thank the fans. We’ve had a great journey, and you’ve been my #12thman since the day I walked through the door. In my opinion you’re what makes Prescot Cables so special, and as a manager you’ve given my everything and more.
“It’s been an honour, a privilege and here is to a new chapter in the club’s special history.”
The club board thanked Andy for his service, saying: “He has been a driving force behind many things at the club, including our new training partnership as well as ensuring greater communication between the 1st, Reserve and Youth teams.
“He has done so much more than just manage a football club and we are delighted that Andy will still continue to play a part in the club as his input will be invaluable as we continue to build this club into a team the town can be proud of.”
