The club are pleased to announce the appointments of a “Joint Management Team of Andy Inness and Ross Flintoft” to the first team.
Chairman Gary Hutchinson said :we had numerous applicants and we thank all of them for applying but after speaking to both coaches we felt as though the club could progress and they have great ambition to take the club forward.
Andy left his role at Carlisle United to become Durham manager and is a Uefa A badge holder also worked at Newcastle United and was also the Womens first team manager .Andy worked at the Newcastle foundation and the successful Monkseaton Academy football team he has numerous qualifications to go along with .
Ross is a Uefa B badge holder and also worked at the Newcastle United foundation and the womens development team manager also at Newcastle University where he was team coach he was also assistant at Alnwick Town and on management teams at Wolviston and Brandon and therefore bringing Northern League experience with him .
They are more than willing to work with the current lads which is something Olivier and myself thought was important as we have some good young talent but are under no illusions we need a bit experience in the team and the task ahead .
Both of them will be at the game tomorrow but will officially take over after tomorrow nights game .
I hope everyone gets behind them and gives them a chance and support, miracles wont happen overnight we know and the priority is to climb the table and move on Welcome to the Durham Family lads #BringingCityBackToDurham
