New First Team Coach for Citizens

Club Statement

Connor Doswell has joined the Winchester City FC Coaching Staff to assist First-Team Manager, Craig Davis and Assistant Manager, Sean Birchnall.

Connor began his coaching career in charge of Alresford Town FC Development before he switched to become First-Team Manager at Hampshire Premier League side, Winchester Castle.

Doswell met with Craig Davis and Club Chairman, Elliott Trodd, on several occasions and after they spoke about a first-team role, Connor saw it as a “no brainer”. Connor spoke of the switch saying, “It’s a massive club, my local club and as soon as I met Davo, I knew I could work well him and Sean”.

Craig Davis has spoken of his delight of Connor joining the Citizens, saying “I’m delighted to welcome him (Connor) onboard joining our already excellent team”. Davis cited that Doswell had done a brilliant job at City’s neighbours, Winchester Castle and he will be a “brilliant addition”.

Doswell will first step foot in the dugout when City travel to Brockenhurst for their first pre-season friendly on Saturday 6th July. The game at Grigg Lane is incidentally Ryan Andress’ first game in the dugout for Brockenhurst, as their Assistant Manager, following his departure from the Winchester City FC youth set-up.
