Coplestonians Announce New First Team Management for 2022/23

After managing Coplestonians first team for the past 11 years, Manager Ian Bristo is stepping down at the end of the current campaign. The much respected and admired Manager has led Cops through some of their most memorable seasons, twice winning promotion including the Division One Championship as well as reaching the Suffolk Senior Cup final. Coplestonians FC owe a huge debt of gratitude to Ian for his dedication and commitment during a period that has seen the meteoric rise of the Club in the local community. We wish him all the best and hope he will return in some capacity after a well deserved break!

Moving into the hotseat are the current Reserves Managers, Nick Mark and Neil Thackeray. Long time Cops players and managers, Nick and Neil have developed and managed one of the most successful Reserve sides in the SIL. Excited about their appointment, both are determined to test their abilities at the top level! The 1st team will continue to play at Ipswich Wanderers next season and will benefit from a kit sponsorship deal with our new main club sponsor, Venue 16, Suffolks premier venue for Weddings, Corporate Events, Functions and Parties.
