Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Thackley have announced that current players Mike Garrod and Pat McGuire will be the new Dennyboys management team.
They replace Chris Reape and Andy Patterson who stepped down on Tuesday due to personal reasons and work commitments whilst teammate Joe Brown, who is currently injured, will join them in the dugout as first team coach.
A statement on the club's website said: "Mike is a highly respected player and coach who currently works with the academy set up at Guiseley while Pat has a wealth of experience around the non-league scene and played professionally at Bradford City.
"They are joined by Joe Brown who also played professional football at Bradford City.
"We look forward to a new era under this youthful set up and we are confident that they are the right team to take the club forward."
Their first game in charge will be the home match with Penistone Church in the Premier Division on Saturday.
