Alfreton Town are delighted to confirm the appointment of Chris Moyses as new Reds manager.

The club can also confirm that Andy McMillan and Lee Beevers join as Assistant and Coach respectively, as part of Chris’s backroom staff.

As a player, Moyses was a defender between 1982-86 and played in the Football League for Lincoln City and Halifax Town before moving onto the non-league circuit where he appeared for a number of Lincolnshire based clubs.

He began the 1985-86 season with Boston United, appearing as a substitute in the club's 5-3 Lincolnshire Senior Cup home victory over Grimsby Town in August 1985. It would be his only appearance for the club before he moved on, first to Shepshed Charterhouse before joining Grantham, debuting in the club's 1-0 defeat at Hednesford Town in October 1985.

He went on to make 26 appearances for the club in their Southern Football League Midland division campaign before leaving at the end of the season.

As a manager, Moyses resigned from his position as Assistant Manager at Lincoln United in 2009. In February 2010 he was appointed manager of Lincoln Moorlands Railway, helping the team secure 22 points from their final eleven league games to avoid relegation from the Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division.

In the 2010–2011 campaign he steered the club to sixth place in the league, their highest ever position, but he resigned from the club on 14 May 2011 to invest in the Centre of Excellence at Lincoln City. The investment saw him assuming a coaching role within the Imps' youth structure.

In November 2014 he was appointed caretaker manager of Lincoln City following the decision to relieve Gary Simpson of his duties. Then in December he was appointed the full-time manager of Lincoln City after signing a 12-month rolling contract.

In April 2016 it was announced he would leave the role at the end of the 2015–16 season. He was replaced by Danny Cowley in May 2016.

Chris Moyses spoke to Amar Sharma about becoming the Reds new Boss:

“I’m delighted to be here at the club, I recognise the challenge ahead of us and it’s certainly a challenge but it’s a very exciting project here, I’m looking forward to it.”

“There is no denying the quality within the squad, we have a great side and we shouldn’t be where we are in the table but we will focus on one game at a time. I want to make us hard to beat and install solidarity and structure to the way we play.”

“I have good contacts within the game and it’s always nice to have options. That’s not suggesting we need to bring any players in but the options are healthy to have. I’ll be treating Saturday as my first game of the season and the lads can treat it as a fresh approach and a fresh way of playing.”

“The first aim is safety and we will aim to achieve that, we know what we want in the long term and it’s an exciting project and we will work hard to achieve that. It’s been great coming into the club so far, I had a good chat with Wayne and I’m excited to get going and first and foremost get the Reds back up the table.”

All at ATFC welcome Chris Moyses to the club.
