TADCASTER Albion have appointed John Deacey as the new first-team manager.

The former Scarborough Athletic boss replaces Paul Quinn, who departed the Brewers last month for a coaching role at Sheffield United's academy.

Deacey brings plenty of non-league managerial experience to Ings Lane. Prior to Scarborough, he spent two seasons at Farsley Celtic, and six seasons at Bradford (Park Avenue) before that.

He left Northern Premier League premier division side Scarborough after two years in November 2019 following a poor run of results.

Deacey joins a Brewers outfit at the foot of the east division table, with just five points from 10 league games so far this season.

Despite the poor run of form, Deacey - who attended Wetherby High School - is not perturbed and is impressed with the quality of the squad.

“It’s a great opportunity," he said.

"I am a local lad who has achieved a lot in non-league and with my experience, it will be an honour to help my local club get out of the situation in which it finds itself.

"Success on the field will lead to further success behind the scenes and on the terraces.”
