Alfreton Town have confirmed the appointment of Chris Moyses as new Reds manager.

The club also confirm that Andy McMillan and Lee Beevers join as assistant and coach respectively. As a player, Moyses was a defender between 1982-86 and played in the Football League for Lincoln City and Halifax Town before moving onto the non-league circuit where he appeared for a number of Lincolnshire-based clubs.

In February 2010, he was appointed manager of Lincoln Moorlands Railway, helping the team secure 22 points from their final 11 league games to avoid relegation from the Northern Counties East Football League Premier Division. In the 2010–2011 campaign he steered the club to sixth place in the league, their highest ever position, but he resigned on 14th May 2011 to invest in the Centre of Excellence at Lincoln City. The investment saw him assuming a coaching role within the Imps’ youth structure.

In November 2014, he was appointed caretaker manager of Lincoln City following the decision to relieve Gary Simpson of his duties. Then in December he was appointed the full-time manager after signing a 12-month rolling contract.

In April 2016 it was announced he would leave the role at the end of the 2015–16 season. He was replaced by Danny Cowley in May 2016.

Moyses spoke to Amar Sharma about becoming the Reds new boss:

“I’m delighted to be here at the club. I recognise the challenge ahead of us and it’s certainly a challenge but it’s a very exciting project here.

“I’m looking forward to it. There is no denying the quality within the squad.

“We have a great side and we shouldn’t be where we are in the table, but we will focus on one game at a time.”
