Fleetwood Town Confirm Managerial Decision

Fleetwood Town head coach Scott Brown has signed a new two-year deal with the club keeping him at the Highbury Stadium until at least 2025, it was announced on the club’s official website today.

The Celtic legend has committed his future to the Cods until at least 2025. After retiring from playing, he joined Fleetwood last summer in preparation for the 2022-23 season, and he had a very good opening season of his management career. Under his leadership, the team achieved a respectable mid-table position in a League One season, which was full of quality sides, and embarked on an extraordinary journey in the FA Cup, making it to the fifth round.

During their FA Cup journey, Brown guided his team to victories against Sheffield Wednesday and QPR to get the furthest the club has ever been in the competition in their history, before losing to Premier League chasing Burnley.

Fleetwood will be looking to bridge the gap between mid-table and the group battling for the play-offs this season, and they have already started their summer transfer business bringing in Ryan Broom and Danny Mayor on free transfers and Adam Montgomery on loan from Brown’s old club Celtic.

What Has Been Said?

After signing his new deal, Brown told the club’s official website: “I’m glad to have got the deal over the line, it’s been a brilliant first year in the job and can’t wait for the new season to start.
“I’ve been made to feel right at home by the Fleetwood staff, players, and fanbase so I just want to give everything I can to bring success to the town, hopefully starting with a win on Saturday.”

Writer’s View

Fleetwood did very well last season with Brown at the helm, and with League One looking slightly weaker this year, teams such as Fleetwood could be looking to take an opportunity to challenge higher up the division. The signings of Broom, Mayor and Montgomery look like shrewd pieces of business, but with other sides such as Lincoln City and Bristol Rovers also completing some eye-catching deals, it will certainly be an interesting campaign for Fleetwood and Brown.
