Tom Pell joins as Academy Manager

In a move to I would suggest that further puts us on the road to Category 1 status, Tom Pell has joined from Cambridge United to become Academy Manager with Steve Avory becoming Academy Director.

Pell spent 16 years at Cambridge and he looks a valuable asset. Cambridge United punch well above their weight in the youth game.

Pell’s appointment does signal more intent to gain Cat 1 Academy status and offers a succession plan for Steve Avory, who I would guess is in his mid-60’s.

Pell’s arrival coincided with the departure of Ruth Corry, who is moving to work with the FA. On the face of it the two roles look different, so expect a more direct replacement of Ruth in due course as well.

Welcome Tom.
