Mark Baguley takes Monton Managerial role with brother Chris

By STEPHEN HOWARD

Duo take steps into Management

Mark Baguley has left Heys to take up a managerial role at AFC Monton.

His brother Chris has taken over as Manager at the Manchester League club who are resurrecting their first team after a two-year absence.

Mark will join him as Assistant Manager ending a four-year association with Heys.

He joined Heys in the in the 2015-16 season and scored some crucial goals in Heys treble success. In 14 games, he scored five times.

Most notably, he scored a sublime chip over Heys current kit man Dan Wolstenholme, which proved the only goal of the Gilgryst Cup Final, as Heys beat Manchester Gregorians to complete their triple trophy haul.

When Heys moved up to the North West Counties League, Mark moved from scoring goals to stopping them making 22 appearances over two seasons as goalkeeper.

Last season saw Mark involved on the Coaching side as he eyed a move into Management.

Jon Lyons said “I would like to thank Mark for his contributions at Heys over the last four seasons both as a Player and Coach. I am gutted to see him go but totally understand his decision. “

“He has spoken about going into Management and Monton is a great club at which to start. It’s a great opening for both him and Chris, who I would also like to thank for his service both on and off the pitch in the last three seasons. I wish them both well and as both clubs are local to each other hopefully, we may be able to help each other out over the season”


Chris made 48 appearances for Heys and scored 18 goals, many of them spectacular and the club wish him and Mark well as they embark on their new careers.
