First Team



Darren Feighery – Manager

Darren has achieved a remarkable turnaround in his short time at Creasey Park. Following two successive relegations, Darren was appointed with the simple aim of survival.
Feighery had been grooming the majority of his squad over a number of years whilst coaching with Hemel Hempstead Town and has shored up the side with players from around the local area including a few familiar faces.
Darren’s professional and thorough approach has won over everyone connected with the club and has fast given the Blues a reputation as a tough side to break down.
