St Helens Town AFC have announced David Platt as their new manager following the resignation of Lee Jenkinson over the weekend.
Platt has been involved with the club since 2014 when he joined as Veterans Team Manager and built the squad from scratch. He then moved on to take up the reins of the Open Age Sunday team before taking over the Reserve Team in the Cheshire League at the start of last season.
Platt said: “I am extremely grateful and proud to have been appointed first-team manager at St Helens Town. It is a club with a massive amount of history you only have to look at the heritage boards at the ground to appreciate that.
“We have a talented group of players at the club and my first job will be to explain my ethos to them and explain the way I intend to take the club forward. The club has a lot of good people working behind the scenes and I’m looking forward to getting started working with them and all the players to put the smiles back on their faces on a Saturday afternoon.”
