My name is Mark Vodrey, I am married to Anne-Marie (Our Club Treasurer) with two children Jake and Ellie-mae and I manage the U10’s otherwise known as “The Lions”, I am also the Vice Chairman. I work for Crewe B&Q as an Expert Plumber. I started my Coaching career with Crewe Town FC in June 2018, my wife is a Committee member/Treasurer and the U8’s Manager. I offered to help out with the Mini Kickers, I coached them for a few weeks then an opportunity arose where a vacancy came up to manage the U8s, it was an opportunity I grabbed with both hands, I’ve always enjoyed football and I am a die hard Man Utd fan so to be able to coach a side that has so much potential was too good to turn down. Been a Manager is the most satisfying job I can honestly say I have had, win, draw or lose, the smiles you get when the players come off the pitch after a match is the best tonic in life! I never thought that over 2 years later I would be devoting all my spare time with a football Club, I know I’ll be doing the same for the next 12 months and more. Jake my Son is also in my team which makes it extra special seeing him progress week in week out, I have three fantastic Coaches in Chris (my brother in law), Gary and Dave. Its great that we all share the same philosophy. I recently earned the FA L1 in Coaching which will only enhance the training and coaching I do for the U10’s and I am looking forward to gaining my L2 shortly. Crewe Town FC is family friendly, fantastic environment to work within, and other than my personal family, I have also a great Football Family, Onwards and Upwards “The Yellow Army!” You can read my Personal Coaching Philosophy here.
Hi, my name is Dave Williams and I am married to Carol and we have two fantastic boys Benjamin 8 yrs old and Joshua 6 years old who both play for Crewe Town FC for the Lions and Pandas respectively. I work for British Gas as an Engineer. I joined Crewe Town FC Coaching staff with a view to help young people gain additional life skills through football and exercise. I have previously managed sides in the South Cheshire Youth League. My passion for football has always been youth sides and that has been for over two decades! I have been lucky enough to see young players grow into accomplished adults, developing respect for others and determination through their development in football. I want to continue to use the skills I have learnt over the years to give young people the opportunity to continue to enjoy learning through football. I believe every child should be given the chance and with the right environment that can happen. I am dedicating my time to help Crewe Town FC, the amazing Yellow Army Family to keep moving in the right direction…I am a qualified FA L1 Coach and currently am striving towards gaining my L2.
Hi, my name is Phil Shea and I am the Joint Manager of the U10 Predators alongside Kieron Hope and I manage The U10’s Predators. I have a 4 year old Son called Cameron and currently work at GIST. I have supported Crewe Alex for as long as I can remember and have followed them through the good times and also bad times, as true supporters do. I follow them all over the country. My Brother Andrew and myself started Crewe Allstars in January 2017 as we wanted to try and get more kids into football and give them the happy experience football has provided for us as individuals and as a family with our father too. (Our Dad helps out with the Goalkeepers at training). We took the decision this year to join up with Crewe Town FC as it gives us the chance and scope to improve as a Club and and both Mark Owen and Mark Vodrey share the same vision as me in moving forward. One of my passions is Futsal which is an area I will be pushing hard for this year for the Club. In a short period of time I have felt very welcome within the Club as it certainly has that family freindly feeling and i know the future certainly looks bright for all.
Hi, my name is Darren Robinson and I am the Coach of the U10’s Predators working alongside Phil and Kieron. I am married to Natasha an we have two Sons Joshua and George. I started my coaching career with Crewe Town FC when I was asked to help with The Tots. This season I am very happy to be taking up a coaching role with the U10’s and as my Son plays for them as well it feels extra special. I have played football all my life and have played for many teams either as a defender or midfielder. Since day one I have enjoyed been part of this great club helping young people play a game they enjoy and achieving their dreams. I hope to gain my L1 in Coaching Football very shortly.
