Following the recent resignation of Steve Riley, a number of candidates
approached the chairman and the board for the vacant hot seat. Several
interviews were carried out by members of the board and after careful
consideration while taking into account senior staff’s input, Bashley FC are
pleased to welcome Tom Prodomo back to the club to take over the manager’s
job with immediate effect.
A week ago North Leigh ran riot over Bashley with an 8-0 victory, on Saturday
Prodomo travelled with the team and watched Mangotsfield United also run riot
with a second half goal blitzing 5-0 win.
Bashley play this Saturday against Cinderford Town at Bashley Road (3pm),
Prodomo knows the task for this season is immense, restoring some
competitiveness, fitness and pride are the first steps with training under his
guidance due to start any day.
Meanwhile the reserves took a thumping 7-2 defeat away at Team Solent last
weekend followed by a single goal defeat on Saturday against Alton Town where
the woodwork stood in the way of at least a draw. Prodomo is aiming to cast an
eye over the reserves this Thursday when Damian Locke’s charges play at Hythe
& Dibden (7:45pm).
New manager Prodomo said; “I know the task ahead is hard, I have unfinished
business at Bashley, last season the results were changing in a positive way
after just a few weeks before I was sacked. Now the chairman and board have
changed, I feel that I can help the club turn the corner and can’t wait to get
started with training.”
Sad news reached the club this week with long-time supporter, steward and
friend to the club Steve Poupard sadly passed away. This Saturday prior to the
match the club will hold a minute’s silence in the memory of a larger than life
character who will be sadly missed.
