Belper Town have announced the appointment of Anthony Danylyk as the new first team manager of the club with Paul Donnelley.

After interviews with a number of candidates, the Nailers feel that Danylyk is the right man to take the club forward.
Danylyk was previously manager at Leek Town during 2016/17 season before parting company with the club at the end of the season.

He was originally appointed as the assistant manager at Leek in 2015, but after the depature of then manager Lee Casswell he was promoted to the managerial role.

He guided Leek Town to a 9th place finish, just seven points below the play-off places, but the Leek Town board decided to part company with Danylyk.

The former midfielder will be in familiar settings during the 2017/18 season as he played for the Nailers in the 2004/05 season, also playing for Leek Town, Witton Albion and Altrincham during his playing career.
Danylyk will now begin recruiting his squad ahead of the new season and everyone at Belper Town is excited ahead of the new season.

Danylyk said: “It feels great to be the manager, it was definitely a no-brainer, as soon as me and Paul Donnelly (Assistant manager) saw the job available we knew it was massive and we had to apply.

“It’s a very well-run club that has a good core and a good set of fans so I’m looking forward to getting started.”
Danylyk said: “In my opinion man management is key, loyalty in football is hard to come by so I need to find a squad of players to be around me.

“Paul and I are doing this together, it’s more like us being joint managers than him being my assistant.

“He has a wealth of experience, getting numerous promotions as well as winning the FA Vase with Nantwich and having his UEFA B coaching licence.

“Above all that Paul is a good friend and I am excited to be working alongside him.”
