NPL Premier Division
Guiseley have appointed their new manager, ending a week of uncertainty after Danny Ellis’ departure.
Former Matlock Town, Buxton and Ashton United chief Paul Phillips has taken the reins.
The ex-Droylsden goalkeeper was axed by Matlock earlier in the season.
Kayde Coppin, his number two at Matlock, will assist him.
Chairman Gary Douglas commented “Paul is experienced at this level of football and exactly what the team needs at this moment in time.
“The board, staff and players at the club will give Paul every resource available to us that he needs to be a success at the club and I’m sure you as supporters will do the same in giving him your complete backing.
“I note that some supporters are unhappy with how decisions are made at Board level, I assure you every decision is made with the clubs best interests at heart and not without due care and consideration.
“The Board have a combined experience of over 100 years in non-league football and specifically at Guiseley AFC but we are always open to additional support should any individuals be in a position to do so.
“Whether that be in time and expertise, or fundraising/direct funding to help grow the infrastructure of the club and team.”
