Andy Davies is “excited” to be back at Cozy Stadium after being announced as manager of St Neots Youth and Saints.

Davies, pictured, Iain Parr’s assistant manager at St Neots from 2012-13, has had a busy first week in the job, signing two players from Posh’s youth team – exciting wide player Jordan Stewart and “tidy central midfielder” Owen Coleman.

He has enjoyed 18 years of coaching at Cambridge United, Cambridge City and Peterborough United, where he was manager of the nine-to-18-year-old teams.

Davies, whose son Jay plays for the St Neots first team, said: “I’m very excited to be back at Rowley Park and working back in youth development.

“It was always the long term plan to go back to St Neots Town FC and work along side Iain Parr within the club scholarship programme where I have taken up the position of academy manager/head coach.

“Since stepping down from St Neots first team I’ve received a few offers of management positions but they have not felt right and I have passed on the offers. I was contacted by chairman Colin Parker and Iain after Steve and his management team stepped down and offered the managers position at St Neots Youth and Saints I had no hesitation in excepting the offer.”

He added: “I will be working with Mark Ducket who is taking up the position of assistant manager/player. His vast knowledge will be a massive help developing the younger players.

“The reason behind the under-21s is to bridge the gap between youth football and the adult game while still developing the players on and off the pitch.

“What the players can expect during the season are structured coaching sessions and individual targets to help with their personal development while still working within the framework of a team. Both myself and Mark are looking forward to starting back for pre-season on July 10.”
