Paul Clayton returns as First Team Coach 

We can now confirm that Paul Clayton has returned to Manse Lane to join Simon Parkes management team as First Team Coach. Paul joins us from fellow NCEL side Tadcaster Albion where he has been this season but has also spent time at Harrogate Railway since leaving Manse Lane in April 2021.

Simon Parkes said "It’s great to welcome Paul back to Manse Lane. He’s a coach I had the pleasure of playing under during my playing time at Knaresborough and know what qualities he will bring to our management team. Paul is an A licence coach with a lot of non league experience and I’m sure will positively influence this talented young squad the minute he walks through the door."

We would like to welcome Paul back to Manse Lane and look forward to him getting to work with the team

Coaching Staff

Tom Evans will still remain a valuable part of our coaching staff, however due to personal circumstances will take up a less demanding role with a strong focus on post match analytics.
