Darren Beckett has joined the management team at Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West club Easington Sports as assistant-manager for the remainder of the season.
The former Ardley United midfielder will now work alongside manager Phil Lines and the other assistant-manager Craig Pearman as player/assistant boss.
The club have moved to quickly to add to the team after Steve Prentice was unable to continue with the commitments and work to his high standards this season.
Prentice joined the club to work alongside Pearman and Jodie McKay more than two seasons ago and has been a tremendous asset ever since.
The club will certainly miss his enthusiasm and commitment but also look forward to the way the new management team will progress things between now and the end of the season.
