Hi, my name is Mark Dunning and I am the Manager of the U11 Dragons alongside Jeff and Callum . 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.
My name is Rich Douglas and I am the U11’s Manager, otherwise known as “The Terriers”. I am married to Jenny and we have two children William and Penny who are both football mad! I have been helping run the Terriers for the last two seasons under Primary Stars and really enjoyed it. Due to us wanting to grow as a team and further my coaching abilities, I approached Crewe Town FC and asked if we could join them, both Mark Owen and Mark Vodrey readily agreed! This is a wonderful club and already we feel part of the family that is Crewe Town FC. there is a great team spirit within the club and I am looking forward to been a part of it and watching it expand and grow even more. I myself have played football all my life and will encourage others to do so…it’s not about what level you play at, it’s about playing with a smile on your face. My Son William, nephew Nicky and all the other lads in The Terriers are really close friends and so have a fantastic bond and the whole team is enjoying the values of team work, loyalty and respect. The future is The Yellow Army!! I gained my FA L1 Coaching Award this year and am looking forward to taking that experience further when coaching the Terriers.
I am Dean Hughes, I am married to Sarah and we have three amazing boys who are all football mad like their Dad! My middle boy James plays for The Terriers in goal. My youngest boy now plays for the Ninjas and enjoys been part of the Crewe Town FC family. I am the Assistant Manager of the Terriers and I feel very priveleged to coach this amazing team of young talented hard working players who are always eager to learn every week. I was asked by Mark Owen to also take up the Goalkeeping Coaching position which I gladly accepted and have been doing so for the last 6 months. I have always been involved in football from playing and now coaching and its a passion that won’t go away. Joining Crewe Town FC last year was the best move we made as a team because we have been made to feel very welcome and the feeling around the Club is always positive and that’s down to the hard working Committee.
Hi, my name is Gary Louth and I am the Manager of Crewe Town FC U11’s Allstars. I have been married for 10 years but been with my partner for 23 years. I went to Beechwood Primary School in Crewe as a lad. I have a large family of six children…every one of them have different personalities and I love been a Dad to them all. I started coaching in 2019 but have been with Crewe Allstars since 2018. I have always been a football fan and have supported Liverpool since as long as I can remember. My other hobbies as well as football include fishing which I find really calming and allows me to think and relax and spending quality time with my family. It has been a great journey with Crewe Allstars and I am sure the move to Crewe Town FC will bring greater stability and structure and much needed help and I am sure we will grow within the grassroots football structure and I am looking forward to been a part of that journey.
