Milligan takes charge at Tigers

2nd February, 2018

Worksop Town have unveiled Duncan Milligan as their new manager and he brings with him a new group of backroom staff to help the Tigers' attempt to push themselves up the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division table.

The 34-year-old has in the past been in the dugout for the successful women's team Doncaster Belles as well as working in America and scouting for Sky Bet League side Oldham Athletic.

He will be joined by former Rotherham United midfielder and another former Belles boss John Buckley who will be his assistant whilst Rick McGowan is also being brought in as sports therapist.

Mulligan is the head of academy coaching at Balby Carr Community Academy in Doncaster and has helped to bring a number of players through the Worksop Town youth system into the first team such as Callum Fielding, Harry Dunbar and Iglor Mlynarski.

He told the club's website: "I am extremely proud to be leading the Tigers at Sandy Lane and I will be giving it my all to make the fans proud and build a winning team.

"I want to provide reassurance that professionalism, stability and character will he brought to the forefront.

"This is a very exciting time for the club and I ask our loyal and passionate supporters to get behind the owners, management team and our players, all of whom hold aspirations that will undoubtedly restore the clubs fortunes over the short and long-term."

The new management team's first game in charge will be Saturday's home clash with North Nottinghamshire neighbours Clipstone as the Tigers look to move up from their current position of eleventh in the table.

Meanwhile, Worksop have announced that Craig Spink, who had been caretaker boss since Ryan Hindley stepped down in January, has left the club after a two year spell that included roles as Under 19s boss and assistant first team manager.

A statement from the club thanked Spink for his "tireless efforts", adding they respect "Craig’s decision to take some time-out at this moment.

"He is a true gentleman with an infectious enthusiasm for the Tigers and will be welcome back to Sandy Lane in the future whether that be as a fan or in an alternative capacity.

"We wish Craig all the very best in his future endeavours."
