Reece Chapman will be joined in the dugout by former club captain Andrew Clarkson. Clarkson made 67 appearances in green and white scoring 16 goals. A key part of the dressing room in our promotion side, Clarkson has made the decision to hang up his boots and join Chapman’s backroom team as Assistant Manager.

Chapman said: “My management team will see some familiar, and new faces. For now, I want to welcome back Andrew Clarkson and John Mordey. When I decided to apply, I jumped straight on the phone to both of them and they were within seconds onboard. Clarky will come in as Assistant Manager and John will remain with the Goalkeepers – although it must be said he will play a big part in our dressing room again. They both know the club, the lads and importantly what to expect from the Northern League. Other additions will be made too but we will announce them in the coming days.”

Clarkson is a popular figure in and around the club and his passion, enthusiasm and knowledge of the club was a key part in his appointment.
