Calum was appointed as Chester FC Manager in May 2022, our seventh permanent managerial appointment since reformation.
McIntyre was the club’s full-time Academy Head Coach since 2016 until his appointment, overseeing the development of Academy graduates such as Sam Hughes, Tom Crawford and Will Goodwin, as well as current promising first team squad members Harrison Burke and Ollie Heywood.
He had also performed a variety of roles across the first team coaching staff – being involved in over 140 first team fixtures under three different management teams – as well as a spell as Caretaker Manager in April 2018, securing an away win at Barrow in one of his three matches in temporary charge in the National League.
In June 2020, he took his first step into permanent senior management with Northern Premier Division One (West) side Runcorn Linnets.
In his first full season at the APEC Taxis Stadium, Calum guided the Linnets to an impressive fourth place finish and the play-off final, where they were narrowly edged out by Marine.
McIntyre guided Chester to third place in the National League North table before beating beaten in the Play-Off Semi Finals by Brackley Town.
He was named National League North Manager of the Season for 2022/23 – as his side went 21 matches unbeaten away and had the best defensive record in the league – before going on to sign a contract extension until 2026 with the Club.
