Former Brighouse Town and Shaw Lane boss Paul Quinn will be back in the EVO-STIK League next season as assistant manager at newly founded Ossett United.

Quinn was named on Monday as number two to manager Andy Welsh after the new EVO-STIK League East club’s foundation this summer following the merger of Ossett Albion and Ossett Town. Quinn, who took Brighouse Town up into the EVO-STIK League during six successful years at the helm before taking charge at the Ducks last term, arrives with an extensive knowledge of the Northern Premier League and the game through his role as a Football Association coach.

Welsh told fans he was looking forward to working with Quinn when the club’s squad return for pre-season training on July 3 ahead of a tough schedule of friendlies against the likes of Hyde, AFC Fylde and Leeds United.

The Ossett United boss said: “What excites me most about the opportunity to work with Paul is we hit it off straight away from our outlooks on the EVO-STIK League, player recruitment, formations, etc.

“After the first conversation he wanted to be alongside me on the first steps of this exciting new project and the opportunity to build, not just for one season but something that is going to be sustainable for years to come. This is something we can now focus on building for Ossett United.”
