Agnew and Bowsley take Seasiders helm permanently
1st October, 2018
Bridlington Town have announced that caretaker manager Brett Agnew and assistant Anthony Bowsley have agreed to take the roles on permanently.
Chairman of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side, Peter Smurthwaite, made the announcement on the club's website on Monday afternoon.
The pair took over from Curtis Woodhouse who stepped down towards the start of last month and they are unbeaten in their four matches in charge, winning three and drawing one, the latest being Saturday's 4-1 home league win over Hall Road Rangers.
Smurthwaite said: "After recent requests from various sources, I can confirm that Brett Agnew has been appointed as first team manager along with Anthony Bowsley as assistant first team manager and both have agreed to accept the appointments!
"They will also be assisted by Gavin Kelly as the goalkeeping coach.
"There needed to be a settling in period after Curtis stood down and Brett and Anthony have impressed me with their organisation and enthusiasm.
"We have a very loyal group of fans along with our dedicated team of volunteers who help run the club and I am sure they will give the management team their full backing.
"As always, the management team will be looking to strengthen the squad and will also be working with John Kenney and Terry Finney to develop players in the reserves and the county team who have the ability and desire to want to progress into the first team squad.
"I believe from what I have seen this season that this league will be the most competitive that it has been for a long time with most teams capable of beating each other and donít think there will be a team that dominates the top of the division."
