Atherton Collieries are proud to confirm that manager Brad Cooke has signed a contract extension at the Skuna Stadium. Since his appointment at the start of December 2019, Brad has overseen our transition into an NPL Premier Division club with consistently formidable results & performances over the course of the curtailed 2019/20 and 2020/21 seasons.
Having already established himself as a Colls great with 265 appearances in the Black & White over his playing career, it is unsurprising that Brad has since settled into our management role, guiding a steady ship through a demanding transitional period for the club. We are delighted that Brad has signed a two-year extension to continue the project started over the last two seasons.
Brad is sponsored by Ian, Tom and Carol Monk, and we thank them for their support.
