Ian Richards appointed new Stocksbridge Park Steels manager

Stocksbridge Park Steels have appointed Ian Richards as their new manager with Andrew Ring as his assistant.

Both are well known to the club having played many games in the Northern Premier League in the yellow and blue.

Richards has enjoyed twelve successful years with Penistone Church FC taking them from the County Senior League to the Premier Division of the NCEL and just missing out on promotion when Covid restrictions were implemented.

The club added in a statement: "Stocksbridge Park Steels would also like to put on record their thanks to caretaker manager Lee Thompson for not only his seven years as player-assistant manager, but also the excellent way he has conducted himself in the three games he had in sole charge recently."
