Bridlington Town have released a statement confirming that manager Curtis Woodhouse will continue in his role despite strong speculation he was to return to his former club Grimsby Town.
Grimsby took the unusual step of denying social media reports that Woodhouse was wanted for the role, posting screenshots of a reporter’s tweets and labelling them ‘journalism at its lowest level.’
Bridlington chairman Peter Smurthwaite released the following statement:
‘I have spoken to Curtis Woodhouse today and can confirm he is continuing as manager of Bridlington Town. There has obviously been a lot of speculation due to a well-publicised story on social media involving another football club, about which we as a club do not want to comment.
Curtis was not at the game last night due to a prior engagement he has in connection with his boxing commitments, of which he had previously informed me.
I would like to thank Mally Parker, Vinny Orszewski and all of our players for the effort in to last night’s game.
I trust like last night the fans will continue to give the same fantastic support to the club for the forthcoming games.
