Head coach Richardson to lead the Reds again next year

Cambridge FC have re-appointed Paul Richardson as their head coach for the 2021 season.

Richardson will also go into next year with a C-level coaching licence after completing the NZ Football-endorsed qualification.

Richardson (pictured) took over as the coach of the club’s Northern League squad during the 2018 season and led campaigns in 2019 and during the COVID-disrupted 2020 season.

Richardson’s re-appointment follows the recommendation by the club’s football sub-committee, led by the club’s Technical Director, Ricki Herbert, and ratification by the club’s committee.

Herbert congratulated Richardson on his re-appointment and the attainment of his C-level licence, saying he had worked hard during a challenging 2020 to ensure he was well-placed for the future.

While Richardson remains in the lead role, last season’s assistant coaches, Richard Wade and Blair Hoad, have completed their two-year appointments at the club and are taking a break next year.

The club is seeking a coach for the Reds reserves. Expressions of interest should be emailed to Cambridge Football Club.

Players interested in joining the Reds next year should also email the club.

Expressions of interest for senior coaching/team management roles

Meanwhile, the club has called for expressions of interest for all other senior coaching and team management roles, in line with past practice.

Expressions of interest should be emailed to Cambridge Football Club. Please provide appropriate supporting material such as your football CV and any relevant qualifications.
