Curzon Ashton manager, Mark Bradshaw, to step down

Curzon Ashton manager Mark Bradshaw is to step away from his role, but will be continuing as football development officer.


Curzon Ashton, who were 11 points above the relegation zone in the National League North at the time of the season suspension, have been providing further information on the reason for the managerial change: “The last few months during the COVID-19 period have been challenging for everyone. As a club, we aim to be ‘self-sufficient’ in the way we operate and the football budgets we can work to.


“As most people know, revenue from our venue hire, snack bar income and 3G hire have all come to a halt. We rely on that income and support from our sponsors to survive as, unlike other clubs, we don’t have a single benefactor.


“As we plan for the future, we have to tackle some big decisions both on and off the pitch. With that in mind, we have asked Mark to re-focus his efforts in his primary role as football development officer to help ensure income to the club through those areas are maximised.


“On the football field, we also feel that we need new energy to help deal with the type of scenario we now find ourselves in.”
