Davey steps down as Rail boss

7th September, 2018

There has been a change of manager at Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Harrogate Railway Athletic after Brian Davey stepped down in midweek.

Davey, who was in charge at Station View since May, will be succeeded by his assistant Craig Ogilvie who the club says is keen to continue with the foundations that have been put in place during his predecessor's time in the dugout.

A club statement said: "Brian took charge in the close season at the personal request of chairman Mike Edwards.

"His remit was to stabilise and rebuild the football section of the club after escaping relegation from the NCEL Premier Division last season.

"He has done that with great effect bringing in some quality back room coaches, adopting an U23 side and putting in place a structure that will promote quality youth football for the future.

"Everyone at Harrogate Railway would like to thank Brian for his contribution and wish him all the best for the future."

Ogilvie's first game in charge will be Rail's home league match against Penistone Church on Saturday.
