Hot on the heels of Phil Parkinson and Neil Sorvel extending their contract at the club, they have boosted their backroom staff by appointing Ross Speight as first team assistant coach.
As Alty fans will be aware, Ross has managed the reserve team for the last two seasons and has played a key role in helping develop the pathway between the juniors, academy, reserves and first team.
He now steps up to join the first team in a move that sees the reserve team being led by Danny Jarrett.Danny has done an excellent job supporting Ross and he now takes the reigns of our promising reserve team.
Joining his staff will be Jack Johnson who is a highly-rated coach and becomes assistant manager as they look to continue the excellent work of the last couple of seasons.
In the coming days, there will be an interview with Ross published on the official club website.
Congratulations Ross and happy birthday!
