Ilkeston Town have confirmed Wayne Hallcro has been appointed as the club’s assistant manager.
Hallcro has extensive experience throughout non-league football as a player, manager and coach, including being part of the management team that guided Grantham Town to promotion to the NPL Premier Division in 2012.
He has joined the Robins initially until the end of the season with a view to continuing in the role beyond the summer.
He said: “Ilkeston is always one of those places that has been very attractive in a football sense when it comes to the fan base, the fact it’s a good, welcoming club and the facilities that are here.
“I’ve known Martin Carruthers since we were kids and we’ve closely followed each other’s playing and coaching careers.”
