Hanley Town have announced that Yeovil Town defender Carl Dickinson is set to become their new player-manager.
The NWCFL Premier Division club say the former Stoke City defender will take over on a three-year deal once his playing contract with Yeovil comes to an end.
Dickinson’s former Stoke teammate Ricardo Fuller has appeared for the club this season.
Hanley have been recently seeking a successor to Micky Morton, who decided to step down from his role.
The club say it has been agreed in principle for former Watford, Port Vale and Notts County man Dickinson to take over.
