Paul Quinn named new Manager at Shaw Lane

Quinn, who left his role at Brighouse Town at the end of last season, after having enjoyed a highly-successful six years, was named on Tuesday afternoon as the new Ducks boss.

In a statement announcing his return as the successor to Craig Elliott following his departure to manage Boston United last week, officials at the EVO-STIK League Premier Division club's Sheerien Park said Quinn would be assisted by John Reed after he agreed to carry on in the role with Dave Thompson as first-team coach.

Quinn is set to meet his new squad at training on Wednesday night, ahead of a trip to Nantwich Town on Saturday in the EVO-STIK League's top flight.

Shaw Lane chairman Craig Wood believes they've bagged the perfect successor to Elliott who guided the Ducks to three promotions in four years before leaving for the National League North's Pilgrims.

Quinn stated: “Having enjoyed a period of time to recharge the batteries I am delighted to have been appointed at Shaw Lane. This is a club I have admired for a number of years in terms of their drive and ambition both on and off the field.

"It also goes without saying I have created a deep emotional attachment with the club over recent times. Taking all that into consi­dera­tion and my own ambitions as a manager, both myself and the chairman agreed this was an excellent fit.

He added: "Finally, I am really looking forward to helping the club to continue to build its profile in the community which for me is an integral part of any successful football club.”
