Frickley Athletic say that after assessing the financial and structural position of the club for many months, it has been agreed to part company with manager Martin McIntosh.

McIntosh joined the club in December 2018 and Frickley say he has done a fantastic job in stabilising the team this season, ‘bringing in some quality players and playing an instrumental role in managing the club through what was a challenging period.’

Club director Ryan McKnight said: “Whilst the football club is currently in a sound financial position it needs to cut its cloth accordingly moving forward. This means we are restructuring the entirety of the football club on both the playing and staffing side.

“The harsh reality is that Martin’s experience, calibre and network warrants a situation that moving forward we are not in a position to deliver on long-term. Myself and the rest of the club board cannot commend the work he has done here high enough and are positive he will be as asset for another club in the future.”

The club will make a further statement later in the week.
