Phillips makes it a Dave double for his backroom staff

Matlock Town boss Paul Phillips has added further to his backroom staff ahead of tonight's BetVictor NPL Premier Division clash at home to Radcliffe.

After bringing in Brian Wilson as player/assistant manager, Brian Entwistle as Football Analyst and announcing Dave Noble to help with coaching, his latest addition is Dave Wild who recently resigned as manager at Mossley. Phillips had a short spell as Wild's assistant after leaving Buxton earlier in the season.

Wild had been at Mossley since March 2018 initially as joint manager with Terry Hincks but took on the role solely when Hincks departed the Lilywhites in the summer of 2019.He had a win percentage of 43.82% in his spell at Seel Park.

"Dave will assist Brian Wilson and me on matchdays and at training and is a really important addition for us. He has loads of contacts and will be able to play a key role not only in first-team matters but also with future recruitment" said Phillips.

Meanwhile, Noble is well known to Phillips and has eighteen years coaching experience at Manchester City.

"Dave knows his stuff, he watches a tremendous amount of games. We need to be sure we get things right off the pitch to give the players the ammunition to go out and win football matches and Dave's input will be invaluable".
