Rob Wilson will join Shaw Lane as their new assistant manager and brings with him a wealth of experience.

Manager Paul Quinn and chairman Craig Wood have moved quickly to replace John Reed who departed for Gainsborough Trinity at the end of last week. Wilson played over 300 football league games including over 200 for Fulham and was capped for the Republic of Ireland at under-21 level.

The former midfielder also had spells with Huddersfield Town and Rotherham United before retiring from full-time football in the early 90s. After finishing his playing career Wilson completed his coaching qualifications before joining Huddersfield Town’s academy, where he coached for seven years.

Wilson later joined up with Paul Quinn at Brighouse and helped the club win promotion to the Evo-Stik League in 2014, before taking a break from the game in 2016. Wilson is now looking forward to the new challenge at Shaw Lane and said: “I am delighted to be joining up with Paul, I’m really looking forward to working with the staff and players to help drive the club forward.

“We spoke at length about the current squad, the plans moving forward on and off the field and my remit alongside the other staff at the club. As a team we are in a great position and we will all be doing everything we can to achieve the highest possible finish this season.”
