Following the announcement that Lisa Trigg was standing down as Ladies Development team manager at the end of last season, we are delighted to announce James Seymour (above left photo) as the new manager for 2019/20. James joins the club with lots of experience both as a player and a coach, and will play a huge part in the continued growth and success of St Ives Town Ladies. Also joining the Development team as assistant manager is Neil Martin (above right photo). Neil is returning to the club after a couple of seasons away, having originally been assistant to Darren Marjoram with the Ladies 1st team.
Following these appointments, Ladies 1st team manager Darren Marjoram had the following words
“We are delighted to have secured James as the new Development team manager. He is someone that I have tried to bring on board on previous occasions, so I’m very happy to have him joining us at this exciting time for female football. James has already overseen a few training sessions and shares our philosophy of developing players who are capable of playing in the first team. I look forward to working closely with James in the coming seasons. Neil re-joins the club after a couple of years away and he knows exactly how everything runs. Coupled with his excellent knowledge of female football in the area, Neil will be another big asset to the team. It was vital to have the right people on board, and with James and Neil in place we believe we have the strongest coaching team possible to continue the excellent work of Lisa Trigg over the precious two seasons”
