Speaking to the club's website, Brabin said, "I'm delighted to be back here and am very impressed with the training facilities at Edge Hill," 

"I know all the people here at the club, especially chairman Charlie Clapham, and am looking forward to meeting the supporters again."

Brabin has took training on Monday at Edge Hill Universtiy alongside his assistant Paul Carden, with both appointed on a full time basis.
