News: Head of Recruitment appointed by the club

1 October 2018

Cheltenham Town have appointed former Mansfield Town and Grimsby Town assistant manager Micky Moore as their new Head of Recruitment.

The appointment follows the departure of Peter Johnson, who left the club yesterday after three and a half years at Cheltenham Town.

During his time with the Robins Johnson helped to recruit the team that won promotion from the National League at the first attempt along with some notable players from the last couple of years, such as Carl Winchester, Will Boyle and Mo Eisa.

Cheltenham Town chairman Andy Wilcox said: "On behalf of the Board I would like to thank Peter for everything he did for us – in particular the recruitment of a completely new team for the challenge of the National League in 2015-16.

"This was a remarkable achievement in such a short space of time and one he will always be remembered for.

"I would like to wish him all the best for the future and I am sure our paths will cross again before too long."

Micky Moore is a Birmingham-based former player with Derby County and Swansea City, who managed Solihull Moors in the National League North before linking up with manager Paul Cox for a number of successful years at Mansfield Town.

During that time Mansfield won promotion back to the Football League and established themselves in League Two while enjoying a memorable FA Cup run in season 2012-13.

He later assisted Marcus Bignot at Grimsby Town and re-united with Cox at Barrow, holding the manager's job at Holker Street before a brief stint assisting Chester FC.

"Micky came to us highly recommended by respected figures in football and has already displayed a lot of hard work, knowledge and a wide range of contacts in the game," said Andy Wilcox.

"I’d like to wish him a long and successful stay with us."

Micky Moore added: "I'm really looking forward to working for Cheltenham Town. It's a club I know well from earlier in my career and this is a great challenge for me.

"I have already had a number of conversations with Michael Duff and members of the Board in order to get to know the club very quickly.

"Michael is very clear about what he wants from the squad so I know what is required both immediately and in terms of planning for later in the season."
