Adams confirmed until end of season

10th January, 2019

Marlon Adams has been confirmed as AFC Emley manager until the end of the season.

He had been put in temporary charge last week after Joe Howson's twenty-month spell at the helm of the Pewits came to an end on New Year's Day.

And, after a management committee meeting on Tuesday to discuss the next step in appointing a new boss, it has been announced that Adams will remain in the role for the rest of the 2018/19 campaign and he will continue to be supported in the dug out by head coach Darren Hepworth.

Chairman Nigel Wakefield told the club's website on Wednesday evening: "We believe Marlon and Darren are the right team to get us to the end of the season and cement our position in the NCEL Division One."

The Pewits say there will be no further public comment on the first team managerís position until the end of the season.

Their next match is at home this Saturday against Rossington Main as they look to move up from their current fifteenth position in the table and increase the gap with the relegation zone that currently stands at six points.

Caretaker role for Adams at Emley

2nd January, 2019

AFC Emley's management committee will meet next Tuesday (8th) to discuss the next step in appointing a new boss after Joe Howson left by mutual consent on New Year's Day.

In the meantime, coach Marlon Adams will be in charge on a caretaker basis, overseeing training this week before managing the team at their Toolstation NCEL Division One match at Hallam on Saturday.

He will be joined in the dugout by former boss Darren Hepworth who will be his head coach.

The club say a further update on the managerial situation will be announced following the committee's meeting as the Pewits, who are currently in fifteenth spot in the table and are seven points above the relegation zone, look to put more daylight between themselves and the bottom two.

Howson leaves Pewits by mutual consent

1st January, 2019

AFC Emley have announced that Joe Howson has left his post as the club's first team manager by mutual consent.

The Pewits find themselves in fifteenth spot in Toolstation NCEL Division One after a disappointing December where they picked up just one point from the twelve on offer with the latest match ending in a 4-1 home defeat on Saturday at the hands of Ollerton Town.

Howson, who had been in the role since May 2017, made his way up through the ranks having previously guided the club's Development Squad to league and County Cup glory before he became the first team's assistant boss and then took over the main job from Darren Hepworth at the end of the 2016/17 season.

AFC Emley chairman Nigel Wakefield said: "Thereís a huge amount of respect and goodwill for Joe across the club and we give thanks to him for his efforts over the past season and a half.

"Last season was a difficult one and Joe steadied the ship through a transitional season.

"We all expected to be able to push on and improve this time around but that hasnít happened so this allows us to make a change to try and improve results."

Howson's assistant James Mahoney has also left the club who say a further statement about the managerial situtation will be made in due course.
