Former Pontefract Collieries manager Roley Lanes has been appointed as the new assistant manager at Glasshoughton Welfare.

The Toolstation NCE Division One side were left looking for a number two after Phil Lindley left to rejoin Ponte Colls and manager Mick Norbury has moved to make Lanes his new assistant after working with him on the coaching staff this season.

Lanes is a well known figure on the local football scene who has previously managed at NCE League level with Pontefract. He has also coached at AFC Emley.

Another new face in the Welfare dugout is commercial manager Garry Willis who will assist with pre-match warm-ups and other duties.
