Former Weymouth midfielder Chris McPhee has taken on the role of manager at Plymouth Parkway. McPhee, who played 116 matches for Weymouth across two stints, scoring 13 goals, departed during the 2015/2016 season. He replaces Lee Hobbs, who guided Plymouth Parkway up three divisions to Step 3 during his impressive seven-year tenure. Assisting McPhee will be Lee Peacock, a former striker for Manchester City, Sheffield Wednesday, and Bristol City. McPhee’s team will compete one tier below Weymouth and will face off against former rivals Dorchester Town in the Southern League Premier Division in the upcoming season.

Speaking to Parkway’s media team, McPhee said: “This is a fantastic opportunity, and now that it’s official, I can’t wait to get to work.

“This is a club I’m eager to elevate to the next level, and it’s imperative that we all share that ambition.”

Parkway chairman Gez Baggott expressed his “extreme excitement” regarding McPhee’s appointment, citing McPhee’s professionalism and vision for Plymouth Parkway as key factors. Baggott emphasized the duo’s experience in higher-level football, which he believes will benefit the club in its quest to progress. McPhee inherits the challenge of addressing Parkway’s pitch issues from the previous season, where waterlogging at Bolitho Park forced the team to cram their final 12 matches into 29 days. Despite the difficulties, McPhee will work alongside goalkeeper Adam Parkes, a Weymouth native, and former Terras center-back Toby Down. Additionally, Parkway boasts former Dorchester players Tom Purrington, Callum Rose, and Cameron Sangster.
