MOUSEHOLE AFC STATEMENT REGARDING MANAGERIAL CHANGES

Recommended Posts

Player-manager Wayne Quinn has stepped down as player-manager at Mousehole AFC.  

The former Premier League player – who featured between 1997 and 2004 in over 200 games for Sheffield United, Newcastle and West Ham as well as playing for England ‘B’ and Under-21s and in the Europa League – took over at Mousehole in the summer of 2013 at a time when The Seagulls were accustomed to finishing in the lower reaches of the South West Peninsula Division 1 West table.  Since then, together with assistant player-manager Mark Vercesi, he has guided The Seagulls to 2nd, 7th and 1st place in the League, while this season the team is well placed to finish in the top three, and is still in the three cup competitions.

Mousehole chairman Tim Richardson paid this tribute to the outgoing manager:  “Quinny deserves the highest praise, respect and thanks for what he’s built and achieved over the last three years, culminating in last season’s historic and record-breaking League Championship and Cornwall Charity Cup wins.  He’s got good players playing attractive football - players who are willing to play for no money whatsoever, because they want to improve themselves and play the game the right way.  And also because they enjoy the club atmosphere and feel a sense of belonging as well!  At the start, Wayne committed himself to three seasons and he’s already gone past that. At the age of 40 he’s still very competitive and one of the best centre-backs in the Division.  Wayne has put his heart and soul into Mousehole AFC and will always be a club legend.  He will be a hard act to follow, but we will do our best to make the most of his legacy.  We wish him all the very best.”

Fact file
Under the three completed seasons under Wayne Quinn’s leadership:
• Mousehole finished in 2nd, 7th and 1st place in the league, with an overall win rate of 73%.  
• In his first season, The Seagulls broke - and still hold - the league record with 15 straight wins from the start of the season.
• Last season, the double-winning team collected both the league championship trophy and the Cornwall Charity Cup, both for the first time in the club’s 93-year history.  In doing so they broke various league records including, over the 32 league games played, the fewest defeats (1), the most goals scored (131), the fewest goals conceded (17), the most points gained (91), a 100% home record and finished 10 points above full-time Plymouth Argyle Reserves.  They also beat Premier Division sides Newquay and Tavistock to reach the semi-final of the League Cup.

New player-manager
Mousehole’s new player-manager is 30-year old Steve Parker-Billinge, The Seagulls’ goalkeeper since August 2015.  Midlands-born, he was on the books of Stoke City, Shrewsbury Town and Kidderminster Harriers, as well as other non-league sides in that area, and then, after moving to Cornwall, played for Illogan, Liskeard and Callington Town, where he won West Division championship and Charity Cup double medals in their 2013/14 promotion season.  

Chairman Tim Richardson said: “Steve has good communication skills, tactical knowledge and local contacts, as well as a deep fondness for the club, and although this is his first managerial appointment he knows the set-up and players, and the Committee had no hesitation in confirming his appointment.  We expect Steve to ‘be his own man’ and gradually shape things on the field the way he thinks they should be.  He will receive whatever support he needs.”

Speaking before the first match under his leadership on Monday, the new boss said: “I am honoured to be confirmed as the new Manager of the club. I have been here since the beginning of the double winning season and have never felt more at home.  My job is to try to continue the success that Wayne achieved and help ensure Mousehole is a recognised and respected force in Cornish football.   My first task is to inspire the players in the belief that there’s “life after Quinny” and to help them focus on what they do best.  We’ve got a lot to play for in the second half of the season in both league and cup games, so there’s no time for looking back.   It’s been an ‘interesting’ few days - I also got married last week!”

Penzance AFC announce that Bryn Wheeler is new first team manager for the rest of the season. He is very much looking forward to the battle to keep the club in the SWP League.

Once again we wish to thank John Dent for his services under difficult circumstances.

Strange way to spell Wayne Quinn!

If it wasn't for Steve in goal for mousehole today we would have won comfortably, absolutely one sided in the second half I felt

Which players have already jumped ship at Mousehole? Shows a lack of respect to the club in my opinion. All the players were happy to take the plaudits last season (and rightly so). Would of liked to seen the players stay till the end of the season and then the new manager could get the players in that he wants to play for him. The sad thing is there isn't much loyalty in local football any more, to many mercenaries unfortunately.

Guys I know feelings run high when a squad moves from one club to another , but using the word rape  , I don't think is appropriate for a football forum  ,  shame for Mousehole but most clubs who take on managers with say a football reputation will bring a group of players , then when they leave the local lads and committee have to try an pick up the pieces , in several instances the players don't want to come back as they feel they weren't needed at the time and have signed for other teams . I have no problem with players trying to leave say a combo team to try and play at say SWPl level this is what all players should do striving to play the highest level possible . Perhaps clubs also need to look at appointments for the future of your clubs rather than looking for quick success , sometimes internally may bring more stability .

Someone else on here said you can use third-party clubs to get round the one-a-month rule during the season.  The 'one player' rule presumably still applies, so if a club wants to recruit half another club's players, all they have to do is persuade 5 other clubs to take one each, and then take one from each of the third-party clubs, plus the one they were allowed to take directly.  This makes the so-called rule unenforceable, and not worth having, but I wonder what the respective leagues can do about this?   Re the posts in this thread, Tim Nixon is apparently not part of this arrangement, according to Bodmin - he is their player until the end of the season.  Also, the players leaving Mousehole presumably for Penzance are mostly all ex-Penzance, which is their home-town club, a club in deep trouble at the foot of the table.  If it's true Mark Vercesi is going or has gone to Penzance, it's no surprise that some of the others will want to follow, as MV (along with Wayne Quinn) is a respected and influential person.

So Big Sam's not got the monopoly on 'how to get around legalities' then !

Then Penzance approach Bodmin for the player.

Tim played from the start and so I would be surprised if your suggestion Mike should happen too quickly!

a real shame, but the club from what i have heard have been running as two teams which you can see from the amount of first team players signed on for their reserves, or lack of, it will be interesting to see what will happen with their reserve side shortly with the amount needing to go up and help out their firsts..........
