DAVE PACE – Chairman / Manager

His association with the club stretches back to the early nineties where he played for the clubs youth team in the Lancashire league. As a player he had spells abroad with Dallas Tornados and Olympiakos before returning to England and taking a keen interest in Droylsden, a club his father watched from the terraces.

He has been chairman of the club since1993/94 and after a succession of managers, he took over as manager in 1998 when the club was in the Unibond 1st division. Since then he has won the Unibond 1st division, Unibond Presidents Cup, the Peter Swales Challenge Shield and the Manchester Premier Cup a number of times. After a heartbreaking play off final defeat in 2005/06 against Stafford he won the Conference North title in 2006/07 to take the club to its highest level of non league football for the first time in its history. Although disappointingly we were relegated after only one season it will always be looked upon as a great achievement.

AEON LATTIE - Assistant Manager / Player

A player and manager who seems to have been at Droylsden forever, a stalwart defender for the club for many years making his return this season whilst continuing with the management side of things, he is part of the fabric of the club and has formed a successful partnership with Dave lasting many years.


Crossy has been with the club for many years and has proved to be an valued member of staff, always good with the banter so as well as being a skilful professional so can also maintain players spirits when they need it most.

GED MURPHY – Player / Coach

Ged is no stranger to the club and he re-joined us from Prescot Cables as a player and coach. A right sided midfielder or defender he is a great motivator and strong character with a good knowledge of the game.
