Grantham Town - Post-Match Interview: Phil Parkinson & Neil Sorvel

Neil Sorvel (born 2 March 1973) is an English retired footballer. He also is the current Assistant Manager for Altrincham F.C. He is a midfielder. He last played for Northwich Victoria.


Crewe Alexandra and Macclesfield Town

He began his league career with Crewe Alexandra, after progressing through their famous youth academy. However, he only made a handful of league appearances, before being released by manager Dario Gradi.

He then joined Macclesfield Town, where he spent six years. In this period Macclesfield finished first in the Football Conference in 1995, but were denied promotion due to their stadium, which did not meet league standards. Promotions did come in 1997 and in 1998, as Macclesfield climbed to tier 3 of English football. Sorvel was instrumental to the success of Macc during this time as he was part of a formidable midfield. Relegation down to Division Three followed in 1999. Sorvel left on a free transfer in July 1999, having become a regular for the club over six seasons.

A return to Division One (subsequently named the Championship) Crewe Alexandra followed, where he played almost every game over six seasons.

Shrewsbury Town

Dropping down two levels to join Shrewsbury Town on a free transfer, he made his début for the club on 6 August 2005 in a 1-0 defeat at home to Rochdale. After being a first team regular for the 2005-06 season and the opening part of the 2006-07 season, Sorvel fell out of favour with Shrewsbury manager Gary Peters, and lost his place in the first team.


Sorvel accepted a free move to then-Conference club Morecambe in January 2007. Morecambe were promoted to Football League Two for the first time in their history at the end of that season.

Sorvel was loaned out to Southport in the 2007-08 season, before being released on 2 June 2008.


After two seasons with Droylsden, he signed for Hyde in August 2010. He made his debut for Hyde in the opening Conference North fixture on 14 August 2010 in a 5-0 defeat to AFC Telford.
