9th May, 2022

Maltby Main have announced the appointment of Russ Eagle as their new manager whilst Wilf Race returns as chairman of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side.

The Muglet Lane outfit revealed the news a week after the departure of John Stancliffe from the dugout with Dave Watts also stepping down from the chairman's role.

A statement released on the club's website read: "The committee have deliberated over various options this past week and we can now announce that Russ Eagle will be our new first team manager.

"We will advertise any other management team members as we find out.

"We wish them all the very best of luck at Muglet Lane. Welcome aboard."

This was followed by a further statement announcing Race's return to the role that he stood down from last September, saying: "The committee have looked at the names we had with regards to applicants for the chairman role.

"We'd like to announce that our former chairman Wilf Race will return and take up the role from now.

"As mentioned last week to keep the club running as best possible, the outgoing chairman will stay on for now in all the other roles he does at the club and to help the new manager in player registrations from July 1st.

"He thanks everyone for their support during the season and wishes Wilf all the best now he has returned to the club.

"Great news for both parties and all involved."
