senior team updates


Kendal Uniteds First and Reserve Teams are back in action as they hope for a full league season following on from all the disruption caused by Covid 19.

The First Team have undergone a few changes both on and off the pitch where Richard Close has taken over as the manager replacing Simon Hansen who decided to stand down. The Club will miss Simon who has done so much over a long period of time, both on and off the pitch.

Richard steps up after being the assistant coach, while he has great experience following managerial spells at clubs such as Milnthorpe Corinthians. We wish Richard all the best and it was pleasing to see team start with a  dramatic 3-2 win at Garstang.

The Reserves have also undergone a managerial change with Matt Wightman taking over from James Pattison who decided to stand down and focus on playing. James like SImon has been fantastic for the Club, a cup win and a runners up finish in the Junior Cup are some of the highlights.

However the team have been unfortunate not to have been promoted with Covid 19 denying them the opportunity to go up!


Here are a list of the new players who have joined the Club:

Ryan Nightingale: Solid defender with lots of West Lancashire League experience

Jude Close:  One of the best young forwards coming out of youth football in Westmorland  Dan Lawson – 6ft+ CB who was fantastic in the U18 league last year

Scott Bracewell – Technical midfielder from the U18’s who’s impressed in pre season

Oscar Balchin – Promising young and athletic Goalkeeper

Kyle Jefferey – Tidy CM who has played in the WL and for Kendal Town Res
