Gate move quickly to secure new boss

PARKGATE have moved quickly to appoint a new boss after the resignation of Ross Shelton.

Former Clipstone chief Billy Fox has taken over with immediate effect, completing a busy couple of days at the club.

Parkgate chairman Albert Dudhill said: "It's been a hectic 24 hours or so since Ross Shelton stepped down on Saturday evening, but I'm delighted to welcome Billy to the club. He brings a wealth of footballing experience and I'm hoping he can get us moving up the table."

Fox has also managed Thackley and Staveley Miners Welfare, who he took to the NCEL Division One title in 2010/11 and to the semi-final of the FA Vase in 2012. He has also enjoyed success at U19 and Academy level.  

Albert added "I'd like to thank everyone who expressed an interest in the job — we had some high calibre applicants — and I'd also like to thank all those people who offered to help us in any number of ways."

Parkgate have dropped to second-bottom of the NCEL Premier after a run of eight straight league defeats.

First up for the new manager is the visit of fifth-placed Hemsworth Miners Welfare on Saturday (3pm).
