Frickley Athletic have appointed John Stancliffe as interim manager after Spencer Fearn has stepped down from his position in charge.

Fearn has taken up a full-time coaching role with Sheffield Wednesday and has left the Westfield Lane club with immediate effect.

In a statement, Frickley said: “It is a mark of Spencer’s integrity that he appreciates that he cannot serve us and his new club at the same time and commit 100% to both.

“We all wish him the very, very best of success.

“The club have acted immediately to appoint John Stancliffe as interim first team manager and this will ensure continuity of the plans that are in place for the football club, which extends way beyond activity on the pitch.”
