19th November, 2021
Albion Sports have appointed Mohammed Rizwan as the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division club's new manager with immediate effect following the departure of Danny Brown and Ishy Hussain earlier this week.
The Lions have announced that he will be joined by Aran Basi as part of their backroom staff.
Rizwan said of his appointment: "It's a great honour to be named the Albion Sports manager.
"I have watched the team as a youngster and I believe I know the club well enough to understand how much this football club means to the community.
"The recent results have us one point above the relegation zone which is obviously a tough position to be in.
"I know how much of a big job this is and that's why I've looked to bring in experienced players.
"It was important for me to have Aran Basi back at the club. Aran more recently stepped up a level with Yorkshire Amateur but it's great to have him back as a player and also supporting me on the management side.
"I've met the squad who are a good bunch and are fully aware we are in a relegation battle.
"I'm optimistic and excited that our form and results will improve, and I look forward to our first game this weekend away to Silsden AFC in the league."
