Jimmy Beadle announced as new assistant manager
Jimmy Beadle has been confirmed by boss Darren Kelly as Scarborough Athletic's new assistant manager.
Beadle, who played for Scarborough FC and then returned to play starring roles with Scarborough Athletic, was brought in by boss Kelly as a player-coach towards the end of last term.
Kelly is a huge fan of Beadle's enthusiasm and passion in and around the changing room, and he describes the 32-year-old's appointment as a 'no brainer'.
He said: "I wanted to get Jimmy involved as soon as I came in as manager.
"I've known him for a long time, I trust him and I know how he is thought of at the club, the supporters adore him.
"You need good people in your trenches and Jimmy 100% fits into that category, for me this was a no brainer.
"He will be a great right-hand man, not only because he will be a brilliant link between myself and the players, but also because he isn't a yes man. If he thinks something is wrong he will tell me.
"I hope the fans are happy with the staff I have put together in Jimmy, Ryan Blott and David Brown. It is all about the heartbeat of the club and that is definitely pumping now."
Like Blott and Brown, Beadle will also be utilised as a player when required, and Kelly still believes that he has a lot to offer.
He added: "If a game needs changing up or if we need something different, Jimmy can offer that, he is a good option to have.
"With the staff we have it is all about getting great value for money. Utilising people's strengths.
"If you have staff that double up as players then it gives you a very strong structure."« Back to news
