16th March, 2021
East Hull have announced that manager Mark Maspero has signed a three-year contract with the club who will change their name to FC Humber United in the summer.
The former Sherburn White Rose boss and Goole AFC first team coach joined the club in December and has now extended his stay at the Toolstation NCEL Division One side until 2024.
Chairman Richard Smales was delighted to confirm the news via the club's website, saying: "Mark has really bought into what we are striving to achieve and to have someone of Mark’s coaching quality and passion to succeed is exactly what we want at the club.
"This deal offers the club stability and allows us to focus on the long-term aspirations and development on and off the pitch, whilst also knowing full well that delivery of the plan is essential to progressing the club to where we want it be.
"Furthermore, I am delighted to have Mark with us on this journey as we work diligently and plan ahead, for the start of the upcoming 2021/22 season."
The club's director of football, Marc Brown, added: "It’s really important that we start as we mean to go on and having stability at all levels of the club is really important to us.
"Mark’s experience, qualifications and desire to succeed has been evident in recent months.
"It’s important that Mark and the rest of the management team know that they have our backing.
"We understand what we want to achieve isn’t going to happen overnight and it will take time, but we have the belief that we will get to where we want to be with Mark leading us on the pitch."
Maspero added his thoughts on getting the deal done and moving forward with the club, commenting: "It’s refreshing to be involved with a forward thinking, honest club with the desire and passion to grow both the first team and the club brand.
"It's inspiring to see the chairman and director of football putting in so much of their time and effort - proper blood, sweat and tears - to make this club the biggest in the region.
"It was an easy decision for me to make. Having the security of three years allows me to be able to instil my game model and a club ethos.
"It also allows the players to buy into what we all want to achieve. To be successful, we all need that continuity."
