Black hopes to steer Town from the drop

GRANT BLACK has been unveiled as the new manager of Ossett Town and will take charge of his first game tomorrow as the Reds travel to take on Burscough in the Evo-Stik First Division North campaign.

Black’s appointment comes after Graham Nicholas was relieved of his duties last week. In his short reign over the club he witnessed the Reds slide closer to the relegation zone.

Former Matlock Town assistant Black is now left with the tough task of turning around the fortunes of a club who have lost nine successive league games.

Regarding his appointment Black (pictured left), said:  “I am delighted to be given this opportunity, I have been looking to take the step into management but wanted to wait for the right opportunity before making the leap.

“Obviously it is going to be a difficult run-in to the end of the season, but I believe the club has more than enough opportunity to remain in this division this season and then kick on up the table next season.”
