Manchester City man in to boost Tadcaster ranks
11:44am Friday 1st June 2012 in Sport
Tadcaster Albion have acted quickly following the departure of assistant-manager Rob Hunter and coach Mark Smitheringale by adding Mike Morton to the boot room.
The Manchester City junior coach and former Pickering Town assistant, who studied at York College and also is now a part-time member of staff at its football development centre, will join up with Albion ahead of their 2012/13 Northern Counties East League premier division campaign.
The club hope Morton’s experience working for the Premier League champions as well as his knowledge of the local area will help them to better last season’s eighth place.
Taddy have also seen goal-scoring midfielder Graham Whitehead depart but four new signings are expected this weekend.
The club hope to continue the annual pre-season fixture with York City though it has not been confirmed.
Albion will face Bradford Park Avenue as part of their pre-season preparations and have a confirmed fixture against Blue Square Bet North side Harrogate Town on Saturday, July 24.
