TADCASTER Albion have announced the appointment of former Brighouse Town boss Paul Quinn as their new manager.

Curtis Woodhouse left Tadcaster to take up the role as manager of Gainsborough Trinity last month.

Quinn comes to Albion with vast previous experience in management having taken charge of over 400 matches, including spells at Brighouse and Shaw Lane.

At Brighouse, Quinn sealed promotion to the Northern Premier League division one north in 2013/14 after winning the Northern Counties East League premier division title.

He also recorded the club’s best run in both the FA Cup and the FA Vase.

Most recently, Quinn was part of the backroom staff at Ossett United who finished in the play-offs of the NPL division one east last season.

Quinn’s playing experience includes stints at Ashton United, Mossley, Liversedge, Emley and Brighouse Town.

He also works full-time at the English Football Association.

The manager will take official charge of the club on Tuesday, November 12 and will be in attendance at the club’s home match against Marske United on Saturday.

Quinn said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as manager of Tadcaster. This is a club I have admired from a distance for a number of years and when the opportunity presented itself it was not a difficult decision to accept.

“Naturally when a manager leaves any club there is a period of transition and I would like to personally thank Michael Ingham and Steve Waide who have done a brilliant job over the last few weeks.

“I am really looking forward to meeting the players next week and helping the club to build on a positive start to the campaign.”

Steve Waide and Michael Ingham had been in temporary charge of the club after Woodhouse’s departure with Waide now taking up the role as assistant manager.

Nelly Sanderson will continue as the club’s goalkeeper coach while Ingham will also remain a member of the backroom staff.

An article on the Tadcaster website added: “We wish to place on record our thanks to Steve, Michael and Nelly for their hard work and assistance since the season started and for taking the reins the last two weeks.

“Everybody at Tadcaster Albion extends a very warm welcome to Paul and his family and wish him and his management team the very best as they lead our club.”

Tadcaster have dropped from third to fifth (the final play-off spot) in the NPL north/west division after a 2-0 defeat at Workington last weekend.

The Cumbrian club recorded a second victory over Taddy just a few days later when they won 1-0 at Ings Lane in the first round qualifying of the FA Trophy.

Tomorrow's visitors to Ings Lane are Marske United who sit a place and a point above Tadcaster in fourth.

Marske have won only once away from home in the league this season but boast a strong goalscoring record - having hit 25 in just ten games, a figure bettered only by leaders Workington.

Elsewhere, fellow NPL north/west side Pickering Town travel to 13th-placed Mossley.

And, in the NCEL division one, Selby Town begin November by hosting fourth-from-bottom side Rossington Main.

Selby are currently third, seven points behind leaders Skegness with two games in hand on Town.
