New Nash Manager Knows The Size Of The Job At Hand

Steve Cunningham is under no illusions at the challenge ahead of him at Curzon Ashton.

But the club’s new manager says there’s no way he could turn down the chance to take the reins in the National League North.

The Nash have appointed their new manager after taking the decision to part company with Mark Bradshaw.

Cunningham and his assistant Damien Crossley arrive after six successful years in charge of Colne.

Curzon finished last season in 20th place - and the new boss knows things are going to be even harder next time around.

He told the club’s website: "This is the toughest job in the National League North but I could not turn down the opportunity to manage this great, family club.

"Damien and I are really looking forward to catching up with the players, staff, volunteers and the club’s supporters and getting stuck straight in."

He added on twitter: “I am under no illusions as to how difficult this project is due to the standard of the league and with the Covid-19 situation.

“But I am really excited by the challenges set by the club chairman and the club's directors.”
