Workington AFC are delighted to announce that Mark Fell has agreed to become our new First Team Manager.

He will succeed Danny Grainger as soon as the current season ends at the end of April.

The former Lancaster City and Ramsbottom Utd manager has proven himself at NPL level over recent years and brings a wealth of experience to the club.

I can’t wait to get started and look forward to meeting everyone at the club in the coming weeks.

Vice Chairman Richard Lewthwaite said, “We are delighted to be able to confirm Mark’s appointment in readiness for next season. His achievements with clubs at our level speak for themselves. Once we’d met with Mark it was clear that he is the right man for the job. We are all excited about working with him as we drive the club forward”.

The club are grateful to Danny for allowing us the early notice of his departure and giving us the opportunity to make an early appointment.

“It’s so important that we are able to confirm Mark’s appointment now, this allows him to start preparing in the background with regards to how he wants pre-season to look and obviously begin thinking about the all important close season recruitment” added Lewthwaite.

On his appointment Mark had this to say, “I’m delighted to be joining Workington AFC, from the first meeting with the board it was clear to me this was a great opportunity and there was a real alignment in terms of ambition and ways of working.

This is a huge club in the NPL, with a great infrastructure and superb fanbase, Danny has done an exceptional job and leaves the club with really strong foundations for us to work from, my job is to build on this and the planning processes for 2024/25 are already well underway.

I’ll be joined by my long-standing assistant Graham Lancashire and we’ll also be putting the finishing touches to the rest of the backroom team shortly.

I can’t wait to get started and look forward to meeting everyone at the club in the coming weeks.”
