Having recently graduated with a qualification as a Master of Sporting Directorship from Manchester Metropolitan University, our managing director and head of sports law, Jeremy Moore, has now been appointed to Cheadle Town Football Club’s board.

He will take on a voluntary position at the club, providing advice and support for a variety of governance and commercial matters that Cheadle Town FC faces.


Jeremy has expressed his excitement for joining the club’s board, saying

“Cheadle Town is a great local club with a proud history and I am very much looking forward to being able to make a positive contribution with the skills, knowledge and expertise I’ve built up over the pioneering two-year MSD course”.

The club’s chairman, Craig Brennan, has also enthused about Jeremy taking a place on the board

“Jeremy is a fantastic addition to Cheadle Town Football Club. He brings with him a wealth of experience as a lawyer as well as the invaluable directorship skills he’s obtained from the MSD course.

“It’s an exciting time for Jeremy to be joining the board: we’ve recently been awarded a grant that will allow us to extend our facilities and we are aiming to develop and further improve our community programmes, including women and girls football.”

The Master of Sporting Directorship course

Jeremy is currently the only solicitor in the UK with this qualification, which has equipped him with the vital skills needed to take on a role in sporting directorship. Other graduates who completed the course alongside him include Ashley Giles, sporting director at Warwickshire Cricket Club, and Aston Villa’s director of football, Steve Round.

The skills that Jeremy has acquired from his participation in the course, will prove extremely beneficial to Cheadle Town FC in the coming years. A strong leadership team and strategic governance play a vital role in growing the club over the coming years, something which Jeremy will be a big part of.
