A statement said: “We had a really good response for the job vacancy and after going through every single application, and after an extensive interview process, we are absolutely delighted to announce that Patrick McGuire will be the new 1st team manager of Frickley Athletic.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to give a huge thank you to Martin Beaumont and Tony Jones for all their help and support during the past seven days. Considering everything going on, to get two incredible performances and also win four points in very tough away games, is quite phenomenal. Very well done and thank you.

“We would also like to thank all the players and Sarah for their loyalty, hard work and support. You have shown your true quality, great spirit and real resilience to get two great and much needed results. Thank you again and let’s now go undefeated throughout the rest of the season!!

“Thank you to all the supporters and volunteers for your continued support and patience. Over 40 loyal supporters travelled to Silsden on Tuesday night and we also had a huge following at Handsworth on a bitterly cold Saturday afternoon. Quite remarkable, thank you.”
