Marshall named as new Garforth boss

Serial promotion-winner Paul Marshall has taken charge of Garforth Town

Serial promotion-winner Paul Marshall has been named as the new manager of Garforth Town.

The very experienced boss replaces his former assistant Rob Hunter, whose departure was announced on Wednesday night.

The former Tadcaster Albion manager, who is close to reaching the feat of managing 1000 competitive matches, left Pickering Town earlier this year.

He has led Pickering Town and Goole AFC to promotion out of the Toolstation NCEL Premier Division and into the NPL during his 22-year managerial career which began with Harrogate Town in 1997.

He has also won the Division One title twice – once with Harrogate Railway and then with Tadcaster Albion in 2010.

But it is guiding Railway to the FA Cup second round proper in 2002 which remains his biggest achievement.

His appointment at Garforth is bound to excite supporters.

Mark Smitheringale, who assisted Marshall at Tadcaster and Railway, is staying on as assistant manager alongside first team coach Mikey Reynolds.
