Warrington Rylands confirm new manager as Mark Duffy takes over

Mark Duffy at Warrington Rylands

Warrington Rylands have appointed Mark Duffy as their new manager.

The 38-year-old has been made the new permanent boss following his stint as interim head coach, alongside the experienced Dean Furman, signing a one-year deal with an option to a further year.

Rylands defied the odds to finish fourth in the Northern Premier League last season with their campaign ending in the playoff semi-final, following defeat to Marine.

Duffy joined the Blues in February as a player in his return to football after he was relieved of his duties as Macclesfield manager.

The former Sheffield United midfielder saw his time with the Silkmen come to an end in October, five months after succeeding Neil Danns – who joined Tranmere Rovers’ coaching staff.

Danns was appointed as the head coach at Moss Rose following David McNabb’s departure with Duffy, who was a player at the time, assisting on the sidelines.

Duffy is the latest appointment in the Gorsey Lane hotseat after Sam Egerton saw his deal as manager terminated. The defender was appointed on a temporary basis after Michael Clegg moved to Macclesfield before he was made permanent replacement – however, he was dismissed 48 hours later.
