Worksop Town head coach Mark Whitehouse expressed the importance of having stability across a management team after taking up his new role.

Whitehouse took over the vacant position after Luke Jeffs was named as the new assistant manager as part of manager Craig Parry’s philosophy to promote from within.

The former Pontefract Collieries defender has been part of Parry’s management team for around five seasons after his days as a goal-scoring left-back came to an end.

Whitehouse says that he was delighted to take up his new position in the Sandy Lane dugout.

“I am excited, but I am also honoured from Paz [Craig Parry] for asking me in the first instance,” he said.

“I think we have worked together for the last four-to-five years, so we have built up that trust over the past five seasons, and I am very happy that he has seen enough in those years to progress me.”
