In May 2022 after 4 successful years as Ashfield Manager, Paul Maxwell stepped down to concentrate on developing the Ashfield Academy Project & `Maxi`s` successor will be Michael Oliver, who has joined us following a successful period as Manager of Harestanes AFC. Michael is a UEFA Qualified Coach who has cultivated an impressive Portfolio of achievements at Amateur and elite Professional Academy level in Scotland. Michael has demonstrated a commitment to developing players and their progress from Academy rank into a First Team environment.
Michael`s own playing career spanned from 2011 to 2017 making over 60 appearances for Clyde FC in his first spell with the Club before injury. Michael also played with Cumbernauld Colts and East Stirling and has played under influential Managers such as Jim Duffy, Barry Ferguson and John Sludden. Michael will be supported by his Assistant Jamie Broadfoot who had a short spell with Ashfield a decade ago. We welcome Michael and Jamie to the `field in what will be an exciting new era for the Club.
