Crewe FC are delighted to announce that Derice Richards and Jack Turner will become the new 1st Team joint-managers with immediate effect. It’s an appointment that Crewe FC Chairman Steve Parker is very happy with; “Its a perfect outcome for the Club & more specifically the 1st Team. The impact Jack has had since he became involved here has been incredible and it was always paramount to us that he continued with what he’s started. I’ve also seen first hand how Derice operates & anyone that has played with him or been coached by him, will know the quality he possesses. As is already proven, we (the Club) continue to put great trust and faith into young & ambitious managers & there is a real determination and hunger about them both to succeed. They both have a very good understanding and knowledge of the game and they will compliment each other extremely well. They have inherited a hugely talented group of players, as the results over the past few months have shown, and I’m confident that they, collectively, will achieve great things” Derice & Jack pick up 1st Team responsibilities with immediate effect & they can’t wait to get started. Derice had this to say; “I’ve been in elite football literally my whole life to date. I joined Crewe FC as a player around 2 years ago and for the first time felt a part of something special. It’s a great club from the ground up, they’re doing everything right. I had to take some time away last year, but I’m happy to be back and surrounded by a really ambitious and supportive team. Mike and Jack did a fantastic job at the back end of last season & Mike has left some huge boots to fill. Im delighted that I get he opportunity to work closely with Jack,. It also allows us to keep that continuity in this transition. We both have huge expectations for the season ahead and I’m excited for the challenge”. Jack, who will now take greater responsibility for 1st Team matters is equally as excited about the season ahead; “I’m absolutely delighted to be staying with the club. We’ve put some really strong foundations in last season and we will build on that this coming year. The club is continuing to move in the right direction and it’s fantastic to have Derice with me as we continue to push forward. Derice is a fantastic coach who understands the values and philosophy that has been installed at the Club. It’s a really exciting time at Crewe FC and I’m looking forward to being a part of it” Crewe FC
