Paul Holland and Andy Todd, who took over as caretaker managers at Long Eaton United in early December, have now been confirmed as the club’s management duo.
Having taken over the side lying fourth from bottom in December, ‘Dutch’ and ‘Toddy’ have presided over a resurgence in form, taking 30 points from the last 39 on offer, which has seen the team move up to 9th place and within touching distance of the Total Motion MFL Premier League’s top six.
Holland, a former England Under-21 international and ex-manager of Mansfield Town, will continue in partnership with Todd, a former professional who has played at Accrington Stanley, Mansfield Town, Hucknall Town and Eastwood amongst others.
Holland will also continue in his role as academy manager, and he commented: “Toddy and I are delighted to be taking the wheel at such an exciting time for the club. As well as the excellent group of experienced players in the squad we have a significant number of exciting young players ready to progress from our academy and CFC set-up.”
The club says it is close to announcing the build dates for over £1million of further facilities investment at Grange Park over the summer which, alongside the significant improvements made over the last few years, will provide facilities second to none in the region.
