Dawson new boss after Fox's departure

22nd September, 2018

Toolstation NCEL Division One side Parkgate have announced a change of manager after Billy Fox's decision to step down.

Fox (pictured) took charge of Saturday's 2-0 home loss to Armthorpe Welfare, a defeat that leaves them in the bottom two.

But, he had informed the club of his resignation in midweek, giving the Steelmen time to line up a replacement.

Chairman Albert Dudill said: "The morning after after last week's FA Cup replay at Leek Town, Billy Fox informed me of his decision to step down as manager of Parkgate Football Club.

"Billy kindly agreed to take the team for this afternoon's home game against Armthorpe Welfare to ensure that we were able to field a competitive side.

"I would like to thank Billy for his efforts as our manager under extremely difficult circumstances, and everyone at Parkgate FC wishes him well for the future.

"In agreeing to take the team today, Billy has allowed us the time to appoint a successor.

"Therefore, we are announcing tonight that Andy Dawson will take over as Parkgate FC manager with immediate effect. Andy's assistant manager will be Lee Whitehead.

"I am inviting all Parkgate players to a meeting with myself, Andy and Lee on Wednesday evening at 7:30pm in Roundwood Pavilion."
