New Teversal boss Scott Simpson believes his side have the foundations to build upon after a poor start to the season.

Simpson, who had been operating in a caretaker role after previous manager Lewis Saxby left the club, has been given the full-time job following an improvement in results.

Teversal recently beat AFC Mansfield and Penistone Church to turn around a poor start to the campaign.

Simpson said: “I am truly elated to have been given this opportunity to manage at Teversal FC who are, in my opinion, one of the best ran clubs in the area with fantastic ethics and connections to the local community.

“Firstly I would like to thank the club and Pete Cockerill for this amazing opportunity.

“Being a Manager beginning my career and like all coaches I’m still learning about this side of the game I hope I can fulfil the clubs ambitions this season and for the future”.

“Since my Interim appointment two weeks ago things have quickly transformed since the poor start to the season.

“The attitude of the payers has been incredible and the results have matched taking two victories in the league and a narrow defeat in the FA Vase by an own goal.

“I can’t praise the lads enough for the effort and the response they have given me in this short time and now, after being appointed first team manager I know we have laid some solid foundations to move on from.

“We hope to really kick on from the recent results and gain confidence and momentum to climb this tough league.

“Its early days yet so who knows what can happen, it’s a long season and a great chance for me and the lads to really show what we’re all capable of.”

Teversal, who were beaten at the weekend by Pontefract Collieries, are next in action against Grimsby Borough on Tuesday night.
