Weymouth Football Club are delighted to appoint David Oldfield as the club’s first team manager.

David signs a contract until the end of the season, with an agreement of a two year contract following this season. David arrives from National League South side Oxford City who currently sit in fourth place in the table.

David enjoyed a successful footballing career having played for several English clubs including time at Manchester City, Stoke City, Peterborough United, with notably longer spells at Leicester City and Luton Town between 1990 and 1998.

David has spent time as Academy Manager and Assistant Manager at Peterborough, West Bromwich Albion and MK Dons with spells also as Assistant Manager at Stevenage, Queens Park Rangers and Burton Albion. He then made the move to Oxford City in 2020 where he guided the team to a fourth placed finish in the league last season, before the season was curtailed.

Chairman Ian White: “Really pleased that David has joined us. I am really looking forward to working with him and together I am certain that we can turn the club’s fortunes around on the pitch. His pedigree speaks for itself and I know he will be up for the challenge.”

Non Executive Director Mark Palmer: A big welcome to David. This is an exciting time for the club both on and off the pitch, as David brings with him a wealth of experience, knowhow and energy. This is certainly a new and exciting era for the club under David’s tenure-ship and I know he is looking forward to both the short term challenges and helping to fulfil the longer term vision of the club and building something special here at Weymouth.”

David Oldfield will take charge of his first match on Saturday in the Terras’ National League fixture away at Boreham Wood.

Welcome to Weymouth, David!
