Ryan Hall will take on the U18 as well as U21 manager role at Worksop Town.

Hall will oversee both sides, bringing in Brad Waller as a joint manager, with Callum Cheswick and Dominic Kitchen as the Under-18’s assistant manager and coach, respectively.

“It feels good to be taking over the Under-18s,” said Hall. “It will help me to progress people into the Under-21s because I will be able to watch their training and games more closely than I was able to last year, meaning it will help the club to produce more talent for the future.

“It has been strange to take on these roles during a pandemic, but I am looking forward to be getting back out on the grass.

“Brad is coming in beside me and he will be instrumental to how I manage the workload across the Under-18s and the Under-21s; along with the other two lads, who will be just as important and they will help me to observe the players more.

“Their longevity within the Sunday League, managing across the Under-18s and Under-21s divisions, will help me in the management set-up.

“They have worked with Mosborough for the past few years, so they know all about player development and moving forward, and when I spoke to Brad, it was a massive thing for him to come in and develop players to move them forward.”

As well as the additions to the Under-18s, Hall has moved to bring in Ryan Ruddiforth as his coach for the Under-21s after Ryan Hopkinson departed for Hallam.

Hall believes that Ruddiforth can help his players with the mentality of making that step into the first team.

Hall added: “Ryan has an extensive playing background; he has played in the Evo-Stik leagues and at youth team academy football level for Scunthorpe United – he has a massive playing pedigree, but he also has the badges to match that.

“He will be able to bring in that playing ability will help the lads to progress into the men’s route – he knows that transition and he can help explain that step up and help me whilst doing so.

“I want to support Craig [Parry] in his ambitions for next season and help create a successful youth system at Worksop.”​​​​​​​
