DAVID Fish has been confirmed as the new manager at Mossley Football Club.
The 39-year-old has been boss at North West Counties League club Chadderton for the last two-and-a-half years.
Fish, an audit director at Price Waterhouse Cooper, has a wealth of experience in non-league.
The goalkeeper was a member of Stalybridge Celtic’s treble-winning side of 2000-01 and also appeared for Woodley Sports, Witton Albion, Hyde United and Curzon Ashton.
Fish, who has the UEFA B licence qualification, had been an academy player at Manchester United and late an apprentice at Stockport County where he had one year as a professional.
He cut his managerial teeth at Lancashire Amateur League side Rochdale St Clement before moving to Chadderton who are two levels below Mossley.
Fish will be joined at Seel Park by Lee Ashworth, 36, who has been his assistant at both clubs and the pair have worked together for more than five years.
Ashworth’s father-in-law is Oldham Athletic favourite Les Chapman who was also Manchester City’s legendary kitman.
An exclusive interview with Fish and schoolteacher Ashworth will be in the next edition of The Correspondent.
