A club statement said they had taken the decision as part of their plans to take the Tigers to ‘the next level’.

The new management team will be headed by Craig Parry with Craig Rouse as his assistant and Luke Jeffs as head coach. Mark Whitehouse will be first team coach and John Hood goalkeeping coach.

The statement read: “After much deliberation, Pete Whitehead has decided to appoint a new management team which he believes will take the Tigers onto the next level.

“Unfortunately, this means that Kyle Jordan will be leaving the role of first team manager and sadly, has declined an offer to stay at the club in a different role.

“It is well understood that Kyle was a fan’s favourite and, without question, has put a great deal of effort into the job at a difficult time.

“Of course, we wish him all the very best with whatever he does next.

“We would also like to wish James Kay and the rest of the management team all the very best too and thank them for their tremendous efforts.

The new management team will be headed by Craig Parry with Craig Rouse as his assistant, Luke Jeffs as head coach, Mark Whitehouse will be first team coach and John Hood goalkeeping coach. Pete Whitehead has long been an admirer of Craig Parry’s management style and the achievements it has brought and looks to the current performance of Pontefract Collieries with whom we are grateful for their cooperation in this move.

“We trust that fans will welcome the new management team and support them in their endeavours to bring us exciting times and success for us all to enjoy.

“It is difficult to know when we can arrange it but at the earliest opportunity, we will host a “meet the fans” Q&A event at the clubhouse.”
