Managerial duo take charge of Halesowen

Halesowen Town have announced that Martin Sockett and Craig Nicholls have agreed to become joint managers of the club for the remainder of the season.

The pair have worked within the club for a while and have taken the opportunity to manage the side following the departure of Paul Smith last week.

They are set to take charge of their first game on Saturday against Leicester Road at the Grove.

Sockett said: “I am absolutely delighted to be offered the chance to manage this great club as joint manager with Craig,''

“We have been around the club for a while as part of Paul's management team and it is now our job to see this through for everyone at the club and our fantastic fans.

Nicholls added: “Since I walked through the door with Paul three years ago I have fallen in love with the football club,” he said.

“Taking on the academy was amazing and now being able to say I'm managing Halesowen Town FC is an incredible feeling.

“All I want to do alongside Martin, Josh and the other staff is to finish what we have started. The fans who have been incredible since I've been at the club deserve to see some success and I'm determined to bring it.

“Lastly the players in the team are ready to fight for this club and I think its going to be one hell of ride.”

The Yeltz are currently sitting top of the NPL Midlands Division, and will look to continue this form under their new management.
