We are delighted to share the news that Scott Davies has signed a contract to remain as first team manager of Slough Town Football Club for the 2023/24 season.
Scott will also continue to play alongside his responsibilities as manager.
Since becoming manager in November last year, Scott guided the club through a turbulent period during which there were a number of changes to the squad – and after Christmas, positive results started to flow, with a seven-match unbeaten run in National League South – stretching from Boxing Day into February – along with big home wins against Hungerford Town and Chippenham Town going a long way to ensuring the club maintained its status at Step 2.
Scott will be assisted by Tony Fontenelle, who also remains as assistant manager.
Scott had the following message to our supporters:
“To be given the chance to carry on as manager at this fantastic club for the upcoming season is something that makes me immensely proud.
“Since taking up the role in November, I’ve learned a lot which will hopefully stand me in go to stead for what’s to come.
“We’ve had good days and bad days so far, but people who know my character will know that I’ll leave no stone unturned in doing what I feel is right for the club.
“To have the backing of the board as a young manager fills me with confidence, especially as the working relationship with those above me has been an enjoyable one so far, full of honesty and transparency.
“The work that has already been done by the new ownership and the current board has been brilliant to see. To have an average attendance of over 1,000 people for the last four home games of the season has shown that Arbour Park is a special place to play football when the place is rocking. In addition to that, I believe it’s only just the start of getting people through the gate and it’ll get bigger and better with the engagement plans the club has in place with the local community.
“With Togs (Lee Togwell) departing, that leaves Yella (Tony Fontenelle) and I to carry the mantle. Yella will be extremely important as an assistant to me, someone who brings a different dimension to the management team with his experience and knowledge of the game.
“In the meantime, we will look to secure the future of the players we’ve had at the club last season and work to bring in new faces over the coming weeks who we believe will improve us a team.
“I look forward to seeing you again at Arbour Park in July for the pre-season fixtures, and by that time we’ll have hopefully built a squad of players that the Rebel Army will be proud to support in the campaign ahead.”
