Mark Clifford is to return to Basford United.
Last season’s assistant manager has reached an agreement with boss Steve Chettle to return to the club in a scouting capacity. Contracted to the club until April 2020, Clifford’s return was spoken about by chairman Chris Munroe:
“Delighted to welcome Cliffy back. I felt at the time he should not have departed the club by his choice and felt it was the wrong decision by him.
“However, I totally understood and reluctantly respected his decision to depart the club in March. Now, though, I think he appreciates the club remains in a great place to push on and I have no doubt he wants to be part of it, so delighted to welcome him back into the fold.
“Mark has vast knowledge and experience and will integrate into Steve Chettle’s management and coaching staff group, scouting opposition and players.”
