Bryant named as new Shirebrook manager

12th January, 2019

Toolstation NCEL Division One side Shirebrook Town have announced a change in their management team, just minutes after a 2-2 draw with FC Bolsover in the Langwith Road derby on Saturday afternoon.

A statement from the club on Twitter announced the departure of joint bosses Lee Widdowson and Alan Widdowson, who had been in charge since October but had won only two of their last eleven league matches.

And, it was revealed that the club had recruited their successors from within as Shirebrook look to move back up the table after dropping to fourteenth after Saturday's draw.

The statement said: "Following today's game, Shirebrook Town have parted company with its management team of Alan Widdowson and Lee Widdowson - we thank them for their hard work during their time at the club.

"Shirebrook Town is pleased to announce [reserve team manager] Gary Bryant will step up to first team manager along with Carl Plastow as his assistant.

"We wish both all the best in their new role."

Their first game in charge will be next Saturday's home clash with Selby Town as they look to avenge a 7-0 defeat they suffered at the Robins at the start of the month.

Camm stands down as Shirebrook Town boss

24th October, 2018

Lee Widdowson and Alan Widdowson have taken over as joint-managers of Toolstation NCEL Division One side Shirebrook Town following Rob Camm's decision to step down.

The pair, who make the move up from assistants, accepted the job offer from the club's committee who had met to discuss the matter on Monday night and had decided not to advertise the position.

A statement from the Langwith Road outfit said that Camm, whose second spell in charge began in June after a brief spell away from the club, had resigned following Saturday's home 3-2 defeat to Ollerton Town due to personal reasons.

It added: "All at Shirebrook Town FC would like to thank Cammy for everything he's done for the club over the last eighteen months and we hope that he doesn't venture to far from the Langwith Road Ground in the near future. We wish him all the best.

"The club are fully behind Lee and Alan and will do all we can to ensure the club still continues to move forward and rebuild. We have a great set of lads who all have the club at heart."

Camm added: "Over the last eighteen months I've enjoyed some great times as Shirebrook Town manager.

"My decision to step down is solely a personal decision and one that I've taken my time to make.

"I can't thank the committee and (temporary chairman) Aimee (Radford) in particular enough for all the help they have given me especially over the last four months.

"I would like to continue to offer my help to the club in any way I can, but just feel it's the right time for me to take a break and to let someone else look at things with a fresh view.

"The club is going in the right direction and the squad is young enough and talented enough to keep progressing.

"Thank you to the players that have represented the club under me and to the supporters who have given us their backing throughout."

The Widdowsons will be in charge of their first game on Saturday when Shirebrook travel to Glasshoughton Welfare.

Camm in quick return to Shirebrook

27th June, 2018

Exactly a month after his departure had been announced at Shirebrook Town, Rob Camm has returned to Langwith Road to resume his role as manager of the Toolstation NCEL Division One side.

He tendered his resignation at the end of May after unrest off-the-field had made him feel he could no longer be part of the club but his comeback has been unveiled on the same day that numerous changes were also made behind the scenes.

Club legend Lee Widdowson will join Camm as his assistant, Chris Timons will also assist whilst being club captain and the first team coach role has been filled by Alan Widdowson.

Camm told the club's website: "It's good to be back, I came in last season because I wanted to help the club and we had some great times on the field.

"Obviously, things weren't going to plan behind the scenes and I felt I had no choice but to step away. I feel now that these issues are being resolved and we need to move forward.

"It's going to be tough - we are under no illusions about that but we will rebuild and we will come back.

"We have a terrific core group of young local players that will have gained valuable experience last season that will play a big part for us.

"The players' loyalty to us last season and again returning this season is fantastic.

"Now, we have to get our heads down and get to back to work."

Shirebrook have also announced that Aimee Radford has temporarily taken the role of chairperson after Cliff Richard Thomas stepped down from his duties at Langwith Road.

Four new committee members have also been appointed to help stabilise the club as it prepares for the 2018/19 season.
