Dave Frecklington – Manager

Frecklington’s playing career began in the youth ranks at Lincoln City before his move into the non-league game where he played for Lincoln United, Spalding United, Stamford, Grantham Town and Shepshed. After his playing days ended he was assistant manager to Simon Clark at both Stamford and Worksop Town before becoming the number one at Lincoln United who he guided to the Evo-Stik NPL First Division South play offs in 2015/16. He then moved to Spalding United in May 2016 before going to Gainsborough Trinity in February 2017 with Spalding challenging for promotion. He led Gainsborough to the first round proper of the FA Cup and the Lincolnshire Senior Cup Final win last season.

Terry Fleming – Assistant Manager

Fleming made over 450 first team appearances in the professional game chiefly with Lincoln City and Cambridge United and has worked as Frecks’ assistant manager while at Gainsborough Trinty.

Chris Rawlinson – Assistant Manager

Chris has worked alongside Frecks’ for a number of years before taking over as Spalding United manager in February 2017 – stepping up from his role as assistant at the time.

Following his departure from the Tulips, Chris has teamed up with Frecks’ once more.

Adam Sollitt – Goalkeeping Coach

Adam continues the theme of former Matlock players moving to the management side of the club. Having played for the likes of Scarborough, Gainsborough Trinity and Worksop Town, Adam was Matlock’s first choice goalkeeper for three years from the start of the 2009/10 campaign, making eighty six appearances before having to leave due to increased work commitments. A very popular figure in the dressing room.

Mark Mullins – Sports Therapist

Mark was a speedy winger or central striker and a great favourite when he played for Matlock in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. He had stood in regularly during the past few seasons when the regular physio was unavailable before taking on the role permanently towards the end of the 2014/15 campaign. Last season his loyalty was rewarded with the Cluman Of the Year award. He now has his own successful business as a sports therapist based in Chesterfield.
