Altrincham manager Phil Parkinson and assistant Neil Sorvel have agreed new, three-year, full-time contracts.

It marks the first time the Robins have had a full-time manager, with Parkinson to leave his job as a sports science lecturer.

The former Nantwich Town boss has enjoyed huge success since taking over at Alty four years ago, delivering two promotions to see the club return to the National League.

Parkinson told the club’s YouTube channel: “Neil and I have always wanted to drive this club forward, and we are really excited to have this opportunity to lead Altrincham into what could be a new era. I’m really pleased.

“It shows our belief in the club and the club’s belief in us, and that is paramount. It has been exceptionally difficult combining two jobs, and while I would have carried on as before if things had stayed the same, because I love being Altrincham manager, Neil and I are now better placed to take the club further, because we can devote more time to it.

“It feels great to be able to call myself a full-time manager, but it comes with a weight of expectation. I am fully aware of that, but I am relishing the challenge.

“Neil and I want to kick on, and I can only see positives coming from it.”
