Goole joint bosses resign

Terry Barwick and Matty Bloor have resigned at Goole AFC

Terry Barwick and Matty Bloor have resigned from their roles as joint managers of Goole AFC.

The pair had been in charge for just over a year after replacing Nigel Emery and Phil Sharpe.

They will be remembered for steering the club to Toolstation NCEL Premier Division safety by winning the winner takes all final day clash with Hall Road Rangers.

Goole flew out of the blocks at the start of the season and despite recent form, Barwick and former Scarborough Athletic midfielder Bloor appear to have done enough to earn the Vikings another campaign in the top flight of the NCEL with a young squad.

Bloor said: “It is with regret that we are stepping down as joint managers of Goole AFC. We have throughly enjoyed our time as managers of the football club and mainly thank the volunteers and supporters of Goole AFC for supporting us during our time in charge.

“We have tried our very best to not only develop the playing side, but to improve the overall ethos of the football club…unforrtunately sometimes there’s just two many hurdles to climb over.

“We had long discussions after Christmas and although the circumstances had changed at the club drastically, we wanted to remain loyal and try and build on what we had created.

“Unfortunately, for both ourselves and Goole AFC this is perhaps wasn’t the right decision, but now we feel this is the right time to step aside.”

It leaves Goole having to make their 13th managerial appointment since the summer of 2013.

John Reed, Wayne Benn, David Holdsworth, Curtis Woodhouse, Alan Semley, Lee Morris, Dave Anderson, Derry Robson (twice, second stint with Steven Jeff) & David Taylor, Karl Rose, Sharp & Emery, and finally Barwick & Bloor have all held the helm for varying lengths of time.
