Ossett Common Rovers are looking for a new manager who will drive the club forward and keep them at the heart of the community.

The new season starts on Saturday, August 17 and Rovers are keen to get a new boss in place sooner rather than later.

The West Yorkshire League side are looking for someone with at least a level 1 coaching certificate who will commit to the club for the long-term.

“We’re looking for a forward-thinking manager who will help continue the club’s progression up the West Yorkshire League ladder,” said secretary Tracy Taylor.

“We have a good community spirit at the club and we want that to continue with someone who can fully commit to managing a senior side.”

Rovers finished tenth in West Yorkshire League Division 2 last season and are keen on a return to Division 1.

They play at Illingworth Park on a Saturday and train at the same venue on Tuesday from 6.30pm.

New players are always welcome and can introduce themselves at the club’s open day, which will be held at the Prince of Wales pub on South Parade on Sunday, August 11.

All are welcome and there will be refreshments, tombola, face paining and more.

Anyone interested in the manager role should call Taylor on 07748 933631 or chairman John Todd on 07880 235944.
