New management team confirmed

THE Seagulls have acted to end the uncertainty and speculation over the manager’s post by officially confirming Phill Hadland’s position as manager and giving both him and Dave Hughes, who will now be assistant manager, 18 month contracts.

This should help bring some stability after a difficult period following the departure of Paul Moore and hopefully the supporters will now get fully behind the new management team, which also includes Rick Ward as assistant manager and first team coach, as they bid to restore the team’s fortunes.

That starts on Saturday when the Bay will be looking to end a five match winless run at home to fourth-bottom Mossley (3pm kick off).
