Britain’s youngest football manager says he’s getting troll messages and death threats online Sammy Mold took over Yaxley FC earlier this year.

The newly minted gaffer, who has just left his parents’ house, took charge of the Peterborough team when they were bottom of the Northern Premier League with zero wins in 24 games. The former defender says his quest for success has required him to make some “sacrifices” that have impacted his social life and relationships.

And he said one of the downsides is the abuse he receives from trolls on Twitter.

However, Sammy said he doesn’t let it get to him. He has already seen some success with the side, guiding them to their first cup final in over five years, despite coaching players almost 15 years his senior. Commenting on his appointment, Sammy said, “To be honest, it’s been quite a whirlwind. I’m a pretty confident person – I deserve the job.

“I was the best person to take it on. Some of the players I look after through my coaching company were on the team, so I knew a lot of them would come.

“The manager, who also knows me well, thought I was the best person for the job despite my age. I’m happy to have the opportunity to show what we can do.

“I want to do business at the highest possible level. I want to do business in the Premier League. I’m not shying away from it, ultimately that’s what I want to do.”
