        Footballer & actor takes reins in National League

        2024/06/19 13:20

        National League North side Oxford City have appointed Guyana captain and Ted Lasso TV star Sam Cox as their new manager. 

        Cox, 33, played West Ham United player Armando in season three of the Apple TV show, which follows the managerial career of an American Football coach who leads a fictitious English club side to the Premier League. 

        After a spell as interim manager at Wealdstone, Cox has taken the reins at Oxford City following their relegation from the National League last season. 

        Unveiled as the new man in the dugout at the tier six club, Cox - who has made 32 international appearances for Guyana - spoke about what fans can expect from him.

        "Positivity - a style and philosophy that is hopefully attractive, and ultimately winning football matches.

        "I know where I feel I can get this football club, and I'm going to do my very best to do that."

        As a football fan, I'm disappointed to hear that Oxford City has appointed a manager who is better known for his role on a TV show than his actual experience in the sport. It's concerning that the club seems to value a gimmick over the qualifications and credentials of their manager. I hope Sam Cox can prove himself and lead the team to success, but I have my doubts.

His experience both on and off the field, as both a player and a TV star, brings a unique perspective that I believe will bring positivity and a winning mentality to the team. I have high hopes for the future of the club under his leadership.
