Rouse returns to Pontefract Collieries as new manager
Former player and assistant manager Craig Rouse has returned to the club as manager.
Rouse featured for the club in his playing days as a striker, making a lasting impression with his goal-scoring exploits during his two spells at the club. He was a key part of Colls' rise from NCEL Division One to the Northern Premier League.
He will be assisted by former captains Andy Seed and Jimmy Williams while Gavin Rothery has taken up the position of first team coach as well as continuing as an attacking midfielder on the pitch.
Rouse has replaced Andy Monkhouse, who left the club by mutual consent last week.
