EvoStik Premier Division East side Frickley Athletic are searching for a new manager as Spencer Fearn stepped down yesterday after 18 months in the role.
Fearn has taken a job at Championship side Sheffield Wednesday, working with their Under 16’s, and Frickley released this statement last night:
To confirm the earlier post on social media, Spencer has been offered a full time coaching role with a championship club & will leave the club with immediate effect. It is a mark of his integrity that he appreciates that he cannot serve us & his new club at the same time & commit 100% to both. We all wish him the very, very best of success.
The club have acted immediately to appoint John Stancliffe as interim first team manager & this will ensure continuity of the plans that are in place for the football club, which extends way beyond activity on the pitch.
We ask that everyone gets behind Stan & his team, the players & the management team.
