Very sad to report the passing of former Mossley Assistant Manager Eddy Haslam.

Eddy (age 61) sadly passed away last week.

He was appointed assistant to then team manager Gereth McClelland in April 2011 and remained at the club up to Gareth's departure in January 2012.

Eddy then became manager of Winsford United following Lloyd Morrison's move to Mossley in August 2013.

He was vastly experienced in non-league football and although based in Formby his connections were mostly in the Manchester area.

As a player Eddy appeared for New Mills, Glossop, Buckingham Town, Stoke Manderville & Buckingham Athletic.

Eddy then served as Coach/Manager at Formby, Atherton LR, Cheadle Town, New Mills and Woodley Sports FC before joining Mossley and also scouted for several clubs notably Blackburn Rovers, Chester and AFC Fylde..

Our thoughts are with his family.
