News Round Up



Kidderminster Harriers have wasted no time in finding a new manager after former Hereford United player John Eustace quit to become Steve McClaren's assistant manager at QPR. The new man at the helm, Neil MacFarlane, has previously been assistant manager at Paphos in Cyprus' top-flight and chairman Colin Gordon says he fits the profile as well having very good experience and great confidence. 

Bradford Park Avenue have appointed a full-time commercial manager after saying the level of debt over the last two years is unsustainable. The playing budget will remain the same as the club looks to increase revenue streams off the pitch. Chief executive officer Rob Stanley admits the club's commercial presence within the city is poor and creating a full-time job role was important for the club.

Gainsborough Trinity are hoping for a quick return to non-league top flight following their relegation. Vice-captain Shane Clarke, who is one of the seven players to stay at the club, says he wants to put right the wrongs of last season. Having notched up over 400 games at Trinity and higher-placed clubs, Clarke told the Gainsborough Standard he thinks he'll be able to offer experience both on and off the pitch. 

Former Tamworth, Kidderminster Harriers and Newport County winger Darryl Knights has become AFC Telford United's first signing of the summer. The 30-year-old is Gavin Cowan's first signing after he took over as boss and played together at Solihull Moors when they won the National League North title in 2016 where Cowan was a player-coach. Knights said to play for a club like AFC Telford United was too good to turn down.

FC United of Manchester have brought in what their manager says are 'three experienced players'. Harry Winter returns to the club for a second time after spending last season with Stockport County, Brad Barnes is a seasoned and well-travelled midfielder having played for the likes of AFC Fylde, Salford City and Warrington Town and Matty Dempsey has been described by gaffer Tom Greaves as a 'tough tackling central defender whose will to win is second to none'.
