Tooting and Mitcham United have replaced recently departed manager Frank Wilson with two internal candidates, Ashley Bosah and Cornelius Nwadialor. Their Assistant will be first team player Jordan Wilson.
In a statement released this afternoon, the club explained:
'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 Team.
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.'
Good luck to Ashley, Cornelius and Jordan.
