Joint management team appointed at Surrey Street

GLOSSOP North End has moved quickly to fill its vacant managerial role following the departure of Paul Colgan.

Paul Williams and Garry Brown have been appointed as joint-managers at Surrey Street.

It comes after the North West Counties League Premier Division club revealed on Tuesday that it had parted company with first-team boss Colgan and Youth Development Officer Lol McMahon.

A club statement said: “Supporters will know Paul (Williams) and Garry from their existing roles within the club and we are sure that everyone will join with us in welcoming them to their new roles.

“Paul and Garry will continue to work closely with our highly-respected physiotherapist Stacey Webster to ensure that the football club continues to develop on the field.”

Joining the Surrey Street management team is football coach Francis Egan.

UEFA B-qualified Egan, who holds FA qualifications in football psychology, will take on the role of goalkeeping coach following the recent departure of Kevin Jelley.
