Hi, my name is Dave Astbury and I am the Manager of the U13’s Warriors. I took on the role of Manager in January after Nathan Hughes left the role. I was previously the Asst Manager. I am a Business Development Manager for the BMW Group. I am married to Karen who also takes a leading role with the Warriors doing the admin for the team. I have seven children of which two play Sunday League football. Max is our current goalkeeper and I have coached Max for the last four years and he has continued to improve throughout. I myself have been involved in football for over 40+ years playing, coaching and managing. I was lucky enough to set up my own mens team of which I was the goalkeeper (probably where Max gets it from). I am looking forward to many more years coaching and managing the Warriors and seeing them developing not only as individuals but also as a team. I always remind the lads, win, lose or draw we area team and that will continue to be our motto!
Hi, my name is Andrew Johnson and I am currently the U13’S Warriors Asst Manager. I am 41 and am married to Liz, we have three children, two boys and a girl. My youngest Luka was offered the chance to play for the Warriors and at first I just went along to watch him etc…..but football is a passion of mine and it wasn’t long before I started to help Nathan with the coaching. I then took on the role of Asst Manager of the Warriors and its a role I enjoy. I love the fact that at Crewe Town FC everyone is treated as equal and all the kids get fair amounts of playing time. I support Everton FC and have done since I was a child but I also have like many others within the Club a soft spot for Crewe Alex our home team, but unfortunately it is very rare I get to see them play as I own my own business Grease Monkeys Mechanics. I have seen this Club grow every year and I am looking forward to many happy years coaching.
