Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division club Frickley Athletic has today appointed Karl Rose as manager for a second time to replace Lee Morris, who has left his position after seven months in charge.

Rose will be assisted by Lee Stratford.

Morris (below) resigned following Saturday`s disappointing 1-0 home defeat to fellow strugglers Halesowen Town.

Rose`s first spell at Westfield Lane started in 2012 after he had been managing then NPL First Division South side Goole AFC since September 2009, guiding them to thirteenth and tenth place finishes in his two full seasons in charge.

Prior to taking over the managerial reigns he had been a player for three seasons at Goole.

Rose began his playing career at Barnsley where he had five seasons from 1995 to 2000 but after a spell at Rochdale was forced to move into the semi-professional game due to injury.

He then had spells at Scarborough, Leigh RMI and Tamworth in the Conference before joining Worksop Town and then Goole.

He resigned as Frickley boss in August after a poor start to the season and was replaced by Morris who, ironically also left Goole in September to take over the Blues helm.
