Aiming for that winning style

CHORLEY FC's new manager Jamie Vermiglio is looking to build a winning side with style.

The 36-year-old has taken over the Magpies after the sudden departure of Matt Jansen after three years in the hot-seat at the National League North club.

Former player Vermiglio has spent the last three seasons as assistant manager, helping the club reach the end of season play-offs for two of those. Now he's looking to go one better.

Speaking the club's official website the new boss said: "Goals for the season are very simple. There's no point in playing football if you don't want to win.

"We'll win and lose gracefully. At the start of the new campaign our mindset is to win the league and to perform to the best of our ability.

"I'm focused, driven and will do everything to make sure we get the best possible chance for promotion."

He added: "It's vital we have everyone's support. People come and watch us because they want success and want to support their home town club.

Ultimately it comes down to watching a team that is playing attractive football and winning games. As a club, that's what we'll all be aiming to do."

Club chairman Ken Wright said of the new boss: "Jamie was a popular player and I'm sure he'll be just the same as manager. He's young, experienced and his knowledge of non-league football is second to none."
