Richard Tracey has stepped aside as manager of Evo-Stik League North club Ossett Albion and has been replaced by former Huddersfield Town academy coach Dave Haley.

The UEFA A licensed and elite youth development coach was unveiled on Wednesday as the successor to Tracey, who is staying on at Dimple Wells in a recruitment role.

He stepped down after four and half years at the helm following his side’s heavy 5-2 defeat at home to Scarborough Athletic on Tuesday night.

Haley, who has also coached in America and was with the Terriers for thirteen years before leaving the Premier League new boys in 2016, will be assisted by former Sunderland midfielder Andy Welsh, who was head of coaching at Wigan Athletic until recently.

After their appointments were confirmed in a club statement, the pair will take charge of the second-from-bottom Unicorns for the first time at Bamber Bridge on Saturday.
