Weston-super-Mare AFC are delighted to announce that 1st Team Manager Scott Bartlett has signed a new long term contract.

Bartlett returned to the club for the second time as manager in May 2019, leaving his role as Academy Manager at Forest Green Rovers.

Across Bartlett’s two spells as manager in BS24, he has overseen 129 games, chalking up 61 wins and 22 draws with 234 goals scored.

His side won the Somerset Premier Cup in 2019, beating Taunton Town 2-1 in the final at the Optima Stadium.

Commenting on the contract extension, Managing Director Oli Bliss, said:

It is great for the club to have been able to extend Scott’s contract.

“He has built a strong squad and a great management team to enable the Club to progress.

“The results have been improving as the season has gone on and that is down to the stability of all involved.”

Scott spent his playing career in senior football with Cirencester Town, Salisbury City, Bath City and Forest Green Rovers as well as a year with the Seagulls between February 2009 and February 2010.

He retired from playing in August 2011 and moved into coaching with FGR, having two spells as their Caretaker Manager while serving as the Academy Manager.

After signing his new deal, Bartlett said:

To be honest, it was the quickest of conversations.

“I’m happy here, my children, family and friends love the Club and I’m working with some incredible people.

“The players give me everything and are so loyal.

“On top of that, we have a fantastic, supportive fanbase.

“We are ambitious and it’s a fantastic place to work.

“In life, if you are happy with what you have then you should give everything you have to keep it that way.

“The staff are fantastic and for the first time, we have a backroom infrastructure to match the facilities which can help take the Club forward.

“The club is ambitious, the relationship between everyone, the board, staff, supporters and myself is important to me.

“From a personal point of view, communication is key and apart from final team selection, every decision is made together and as a result, we are growing all areas of the Club in a sensible and steady way.

“It’s a privilege to be manager of Weston-super-Mare AFC and long may that continue.”

We wish Scott and his team all the best as we enter the final stages of the season.
