New Pontefract Collieries manager Craig Rouse has said that taking the reins almost feels like returning home.

Having enjoyed success with the club as player and assistant manager, Rouse told the club’s website about returning as number one:




“It feels brilliant to be back and I can’t wait to get started as soon as we are given the nod to do so.

“I’ve seen a few comments around social media saying ‘welcome home’ etc. and it almost does feel like that.

“It’s where I spent my best days as a player, and equally, it’s where I spent my best days as part of the management team that achieved what we did, so yes I’m delighted to be back!”
