City Fans, please welcome back Manager Paddy Coyne and 1st Team Coach Shaun Ramsden!
The duo took over the reigns of SF City FC in the 2015 during the NorCal Premier League Summer session and have been with SF City ever since. In 2015, they guided SF City through a tough qualification process to get to the 1st Round of the U.S. Open Cup. For a first year club in the PDL, Coyne and Ramsden amassed a 6-6-2 record, finishing in 3rd place of the Central Pacific Division, narrowly missing a playoff berth.
Coyne, who has coached on 4 different continents and in 5 countries is delighted to be back stating, “I’m super excited for the upcoming season. We have some great players returning to the fold, as well as new talent to announce in the upcoming months. Our new stadium’s playing surface will suit our fast passing game and I’m sure the atmosphere will be very special with our wonderful support.”
With 20 years of coaching experience in the United States, Ramsden added, “Representing this City and the fans is something that makes me very proud. We learned so much about the league and its demands in our inaugural season. With more time to recruit, a new home venue, we are extremely excited and motivated to bring a winning mentality this summer.”
We look forward to having Paddy and Shaun leading our coaching staff in 2017!!
