Phil Brown isn’t expecting to get Clitheroe running before they can walk, but the new boss at Shawbridge is hoping to introduce the club to a whole new world at some point down the line, say the Clitheroe Advertiser & Times.
Lee Ashforth’s successor in the Ribble Valley has operated at a level yet to be discovered by the Blues, having led Lancaster City to the Evo-Stik Premier Division in 2017.
Brown, who had replaced Darren Peacock and Trevor Sinclair at the Giant Axe Stadium, also worked under Alan Lord at Stockport County in the National League North.
Those lands remain unexplored to many housed in the eighth level of the football pyramid, and Brown acknowledges that there’s much work to be done beforehand, but that is the projected goal over the club’s three-year plan.
“I’ve been in and around this level for quite a while, whether that be as manager or an assistant,” he said.
“I had three years at Lancaster City, two in this division and one in the tier above after we won promotion.
“I’ve worked at a higher level with Stockport County in the Conference North and I really enjoyed my time there.”
