Management update

Yorkshire Amateur confirm manager Casey O’Reilly has been relieved of his duties.

The decision made by the board is a reaction to the team’s results to open the season, conscious of the club’s current position in it’s community hub project. O’Reilly has agreed to an alternate role.

The new management team will be in place for Saturday’s trip to Athersley Recreation – to be announced shortly.

O’Reilly’s tenure began in January this year, promoted from the club’s u21s and joining Jake Boyd as co-managers. O’Reilly took sole charge for a series of last season’s remaining fixtures, indicating a positive change in performances of an all-but relegated side, notably including victory against an in-form Hallam FC, despite The Ammers ultimately failing to avoid the drop.

Gaining just a single point from the opening six games, and a significantly weaker goal difference, the decision has been made to change management.

O’Reilly has been reallocated a role within the club’s project, assisting the board.

    I first went to Bracken Edge in early 1950s when I was about 8.We lived in Roxbolme Avenue, our garden bordered the ground but he always walked round to the turnstile box and paid for us.I have lived in South Wales for nearly 60 years. Ammers remain my first team though.The memories I have of big crowds for some Amateur Cup ties,good players some of whom.became pros,being chased off the pitch by legendary groundsman MR Ted Armitage,the old wooden stand,the raffle ticket man and so on.
    Disappointing are recent results but the achievement is in the fact that the club survives with it seems a healthy youth set up.Sometimes you have to go down a bit to reach your level and then rebuild that is where the youth comes in.
    Best of luck to your hard working administrators,the heart best of local sport.
