“During my first meeting with Chris and then later with Gary I was immediately impressed by the scale of the ambition this club and the owners have. It has made rapid progress over the last four years and I am delighted they have asked myself and Chris to spearhead the next stage of the club’s development.
As a manager you have to look for certain aspects of what can be achieved at a new club and the possibilities here are boundless. There is a great deal of work to be done on and off the pitch to fulfil the potential of Salford City and I can’t wait to get started. Even though this season has just ended, our work in preparation for the club’s first season at National level will continue throughout the summer. I look forward to meeting everybody connected with SCFC and developing the relationships which are so important to any club’s success”
