The man who managed North Ferriby United during their one and only season in the top flight of non-league football has been awarded more than £3,500 by an employment tribunal following his sacking.

Chairman Jamie Waltham sacked Steve Housham just two days after he took over the running of the club from the Forster family in November 2017. Housham spent around 16 months as the Villagers’ manager, alongside his assistant Darryn Stamp who has also received a four-figure pay-out.

Both men made legal claims against the club for breach of contract. Claims of unlawful deduction of wages were withdrawn. In total, Housham was awarded £3,794 while Stamp was awarded £2,944. Both men were also awarded costs of £1,248 each against the club who did not attend the hearing.
