BARNOLDSWICK Town have confirmed the return of a familiar duo to their management team.

The club have welcomed back Ben Hall and Craig Bradshaw, and the pair will be in the dugout representing Barlick once again as early as Saturday, as the first team travel to Shelley in the cup.

Barlick have confirmed that Paul Bradley, Robin Chapman and Adam Waddingham will remain in their respective roles.

Speaking to Barnoldswick's media team upon arrival, Hall, who last managed Barlick ten years ago, said: "I'm delighted to be back at Barnoldswick. A week ago, I didn't think that this would be possible, but things move very quickly in football.

"It's a club I hold close to my heart and it's a club where I've already spent four successful years at, so I'm thrilled to be back and I can't wait to get going again."

Giving his thoughts on the current crop of players, Hall said: "From what I've seen, it's been excellent. Most recently I watched the team up at Colne and particularly for the first hour of that game, it was as good as I've seen for a long, long time. In fact, it's probably the best I've seen Barlick player in the last ten years since I left. There's some real leaders in that team, and it's a crop of players I'm looking forward to working with."

The move to bring back Hall and Bradshaw to the club's management team, of course, comes after Andy Harrison's decision to step down as Barnoldswick's manager, which came following Barlick's 4-2 defeat at home to AFC Liverpool at the start of November.

On Saturday Barlick's home fixture with Wythenshawe Town was postponed due to the weather.
