Simon Houghton and Craig Wilkinson are the new joint managers of Toolstation NCEL Division One side Glasshoughton Welfare.

The pair were appointed last night (Tuesday) after a successful interview.

Former Pontefract and Shaw Lane Aquaforce boss Houghton was Craig Elliott’s assistant at Glasshoughton during their promotion-winning Division One season in 2011-12.

Wilkinson, who played for Hemsworth, Worsbrough Bridge and AFC Emley, worked with Houghton at Kinsley Boys last season.

They replace Mick Norbury who resigned last week.

Their first match in charge will be a home fixture against Yorkshire Amateur this Saturday.
