PAUL QUINN is the new manager of Brighouse Town.
Fresh from guiding Kirkburton to a top three finish in the West Riding County Amateur League, Quinn has taken charge of the Northern Counties East Premier Division outfit.
Quinn watched his new charges defeat Maltby Main 2-0 on Saturday when Barry Thomas and Mark Booth were still taking charge of the team.
Quinn, a UEFA B qualified coach who is taking his A licence this year, will be aiming to improve on Brighouse’s third place in the table and he takes with him a creditable CV already.
Not only did he guide Kirkburton to the highest position in the club’s 100-year history, but they reached the Sheffield County Cup final last season and the league cup semi-finals.
Previously, Quinn had two very successful seasons in charge of Huddersfield Irish Centre FC, reaching the latter stages of both FA National and County competitions at Sunday level.
Quinn holds a degree in Physical Education and is a fully-qualified PE teacher and Sports Coordinator at a secondary school.
He played in the North East Counties Premier with Liversedge, with Emley in the First Division and with Mossley in the Unibond League.
Quinn also played for Bay Athletic, winning the West Riding Premier Division before moving to Kirkburton as manager.
