BURSCOUGH con­firmed the ap­point­ment of Terry Green as the club’s new first team man­ager last week.

Dave Sut­ton, who had been act­ing as the club’s man­ager af­ter step­ping up to the po­si­tion last year, will now re­vert to his di­rec­tor of foot­ball role.

Green signed a new two-year deal with fel­low HSL Premier Di­vi­sion out­fit Abbey Hey six months ago but has jumped at the chance to take the reins at Vic­to­ria Park.

Burscough are 15th in the ta­ble fol­low­ing last week­end’s 1-1 draw with Charnock Richard and Green’s first task will be nav­i­gat­ing Sand­bach FC in the Macron Cup this week­end.

An­nounc­ing their new man­ager, Lin­nets also re­vealed the club are tar­get­ing a top-half fin­ish un­der Green’s stew­ard­ship de­spite only nar­rowly avoid­ing the drop last term.

“Terry will be de­vel­op­ing the es­tab­lished play­ing squad [and] work­ing along­side the di­rec­tor of foot­ball and club of­fi­cials in an am­bi­tious first sea­son,” the club state­ment read.

“[Next] sea­son will bring the full ben­e­fit of Terry’s 28 years ex­pe­ri­ence in foot­ball, gained both as a pro­fes­sional and in non-league com­pe­ti­tions. He holds FA Coach­ing Badges at Lev­els 1 & 2.”

Chair­man Mike Swift added: “This ap­point­ment by the di­rec­tors is made fol­low­ing a ro­bust process and on be­half of the club I’m pleased to wish Terry good luck with his ap­point­ment that is a step up from his pre­vi­ous role as an as­sis­tant man­ager in our cur­rent league.

“I must also sin­cerely thank the 13 other ap­pli­cants for the post, their in­ter­est in the club, foot­ball at Vic­to­ria Park and our plans go­ing for­ward. It is to the credit of our play­ers and the her­itage of Burscough FC.”
