- Wingate & Finchley are pleased to announce the appointment of Tony Faulkner as the Assistant Manager of the first team.
Faulkner has spent the past 18 months as Manager at Ware FC of Ryman Division One North. He guided them to safety in 2010 despite the side being nine points adrift in the relegation zone when he took over.
Last season Ware reached two cup semi-finals and improved dramatically in the league as they finished comfortably mid-table.
Faulkner has previously managed Brimsdown Rovers, Cockfosters and Broxbourne Borough, and has coached at Luton Town’s Academy.
Faulkner said on joining the club “Wingate & Finchley have a great set-up and a very good squad of players, who I am looking forward to working with. Dave (Norman) has a very good management team alongside him and I’m sure I can compliment them.”
Faulkner joins with a good background knowledge of all the squad and their abilities, in particular centre-forward Murat Karagul with whom he has worked twice before.
Faulkner added “Our first goal for this season is to build on last year by stabilising us as a Premier League team, and then look for good runs in the FA Cup and Trophy.”
