Vauxhall Motors appoint Anthony Wright as manager

Blue Square Bet North

Blue Square Bet North side Vauxhall Motors have appointed Anthony Wright as their new manager following the resignation of Carl Macauley.

Macauley left the club after more than five years at the helm after a promotion in his full-time job meant he could not commit time to the role.

Motors chairman Alan Bartlam told BBC Radio Merseyside: "Carl has done a terrific job for us.

"But Anthony is more than capable of stepping up so we continue as normal."

Wright has been elevated to the position of manager after being the club's assistant manager last season and has brought former Notts County striker Gary Martindale as his assistant coach.

Bartlam continued: "Anthony knows all the players and he's helped bring a few of the players who are already on board.

"I don't envisage a mass of changes on the playing side. Carl's methods worked in the past and Anthony has learned from those situations sitting on the bench next to him.

"We now continue, hopefully in the same direction."

Vauxhall Motors finished 17th in Blue Square Bet North last season, 13 points above the drop zone.
