Matlock Town have announced the appointment of former Gainsborough Trinity boss Dave Frecklington as their new manager.
Frecklington steps into the role after the resignation earlier this week of Dave Hoole.
He told the Evo-Stik Premier club’s website:
“First of all I’m absolutely delighted and excited to have got the job and I can’t wait to get my teeth into it. Matlock’s a lovely club with good support. I’ve had a three or four months break, I feel refreshed and ready to go. The important first aim is to get the club out of the bottom three, stop the rot and move upwards from there. I’ll be seeing the players at training for the first time on Thursday with my staff,Terry Fleming and Chris Rawlinson, and the intention is to make things more solid and keep the back door shut.
“Basically it has to be winning football, we all want the ideal game but we have to play to a style which will stop us haemorrhaging goals.”
Matlock have so far conceded eighteen goals in their opening six league matches.
