Shelton steps down as Parkgate boss

19th November, 2017

Ross Shelton has resigned as manager of Parkgate, just seventeen days after he was given the role on a permanent basis at the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side.

The news came a couple of hours after a bruising 6-0 home defeat to Thackley, their eighth loss in a row in the league that saw them drop into the bottom two of the table.

A statement on Saturday night from the Steelmen said that Shelton stepped down following a meeting with chairman Albert Dudill after the match, adding: "The club would like to thank Ross for his efforts as manager and is as disappointed as Ross that recent results have not gone as well as both parties had hoped."

It has been a turbulent month for Parkgate, starting with Shelton taking temporary charge in mid-October after the club announced that then-boss Graham Nicholas would be taking a leave of absence for a few weeks.

Nicholas resigned a week later and Shelton was named his successor on the 1st of November with Keelan Hall coming in as his assistant the following day.

However, league defeats to Rainworth Miners Welfare, Athersley Recreation and then Thackley, along with an exit from the Sheffield & Hallamshire Senior Cup at home to Swallownest, led to Shelton's quick departure.
