Late last night NCEL Division One side Winterton Rangers announced their new management team following the sacking of Rob Watson on Sunday.
A statement on the club’s official website says, “Winterton Rangers are pleased to announce that Assistant Manager, Scott Hellewell, has accepted the vacant position of First Team Manager.
Scott will be joined by Paul Grimes who will take up the role of player & Assistant Manager.
“I’m really pleased to be the manager of Winterton Rangers, it’s an ambitious club with great facilities and I feel privileged to be given this chance. The club in the past week has come in for a bit of criticism but I’m hoping with a turn in fortunes on the pitch the negativity will soon disappear. The club is in a great position in the league and still has every chance of pushing for promotion.
Rob Watson has done a great job to get us in the position we are in but unfortunately sometimes in football decisions are made and it’s ended up in Rob leaving the club. I have no doubt he will be very successful in the game and I will stay in contact with him.
As a club we need to start getting results as the last few weeks we have struggled, confidence is low but all the lads are pulling in the right direction. We have received offers in for our players this week as other clubs will see us as a club in turmoil but that is not the case. To back that up all 3 players have agreed to stay at the club and are fully behind myself, Paul and JT”
Rangers can also confirm that First Team Coach, John Taylor, will also be continuing his role with the first team as a valuable asset to the senior coaching setup.
