Members of the Bostick League South Central Division Football League -
“Tooting and Mitcham United FC are delighted to confirm their First Team management
structure for the new season.
Our aim with these appointments is to bring our First
Team much closer to our successful player development activities at Under 23, Under
18, Academy and Youth levels. Our player recruitment draws on the vast and diverse
communities of South London and we aim to serve those communities by providing talented
young players with a clear and supportive pathway for advancement within our club
and ultimately into professional football.
We have therefore decided to back our own
home-grown talent by appointing to the First Team Management three of our most successful
development managers and coaches. Ashley Bosah and Cornelius Nwadialor are to take
the reins as Joint Managers with Jordan Wilson in the dual role of Assistant Manager
Ashley has been a key figure in our club for more than 8 years -
working with the T&M Youth Football Club, heading up our Football Academy and overseeing
the U18s and U23s development squads. He has a particular interest in the educational
and well-being aspects of young player development.
Cornelius has been associated
with the club for 5 years and last year guided the U23s to the Suburban League South
Division Championship and the Runners-Up position in the Isthmian Development League
Central Division (with a sensational goal difference). He will continue to manage
the U23 team next season, alongside his First Team responsibilities.
Jordan has played
in the TMUFC first team for the last 8 seasons and is an energetic force on the pitch
with game-changing potential whenever he appears. He will manage the U18s next season
and coach the Football Academy boys as well as continuing to play for TMUFC First
Ashley, Cornelius and Jordan have all shown strong leadership and are perfect
role models for the young and gifted players that our club is able to attract from
all over South London. Their skills are not only in football technique and tactics,
but also in the counselling and all-round well-being of the footballers. As a club,
we believe that this approach not only serves a valuable purpose within the wider
community but should result in success on the pitch.
The forthcoming season's squad
will draw on some of the current Under 23 team and First Team, combining youth and
experienced players. We already have commitments from key players in both squads,
who share the club's enthusiasm for these changes. We all believe that this will
maximise our chances of football success, both for individual players and the team
as a whole, and will fully justify our ethos of providing opportunities, pathways
and progression for all within the Club.”
