Brighouse Town Part Ways With Vill Powell

News just in that after 8 years at the helm, Vill Powell, along with Louis Axcell and leon Wainman, are leaving teh club with immediate effect.

Here’s the release in full from Brighouse Town AFC

It is with a heavy heart that Brighouse Town and Manager Vill Powell have agreed to part ways. This is taken with the best interest of the club at heart and been agreed it’s the best course of action for both parties.

After 8 years with challenges and successes and what has resulted in a difficult season, both parties feel it’s time for a change and a new voice. This was Vill’s first managerial role and 8 years in is a real achievement and he should be extremely proud of what he has achieved.

Vill has said “In my time at Brighouse, we have had some great memories and some lifelong friendships have been made. I would like to go on record to thank Charlie Tolley supporting me throughout the 8 years and Chris Lister who has continued that support. I’d also like to thank everyone at the football club who have helped in moving the club forward.

I would also like to thank my staff during my time Nat, Louis, Leon and Stacy and all the players.

All good things come to an end, and I have enjoyed and learned so much at my time at Brighouse, stuff that I can take forward with me, but it is now someone else’s turn at Brighouse and I wish them all the best.”

Vill’s commitment to the whole club from day one cannot be questioned and his contributions over the last 8 years both on and off the field cannot be questioned but both parties have now decided that the time is right to move on in separate directions.

We all wish Vill all the very best in his next footballing endeavours where we are certain he will have great success.

We would also like to thank Louis Axcell and Leon Wainman for their efforts at the club as they depart the club.
