Sheffield FC have announced Andy Kiwomya as their new manager shortly after parting company with Jordan Broadbent.

Kiwomya, who lists Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday and Rotherham United amongst his former league clubs, becomes Club’s third manager in less than 12 months.

The 46 year-old Huddersfield-born boss has also had stints in non-League with Boston United, Nuneaton Town, Ilkeston Town and Stocksbridge Park Steels. He hold’ a UEFA A ’ coaching licence and is a qualified football fitness coach of 15-years.

Kiwomya is looking forward to his first crack at management, saying: “I can’t wait to get started. I’m really looking forward to working with the chairman, players, fans and sponsors to help develop vision outlined for this prestigiousl club.”

Outgoing manager Jordan Broadbent said there was no hard feelings surrounding his departure: “It was an amicable parting of the ways which i is probably best for both parties with my work commitments at Sheffield United and the chairman wanting to take the club in a different direction.

“I’ve had three enjoyable years at the club and met a lot of good people and I wish them all the very best for the future.”

Broadbent added: “The real success for me has been bringing the Uner-19s into the first team. It’s perhaps just a shame I couldn’t have stayed another year and helped them finish their progress. .”

Maltby Main chairman Wilf Race said he and his committee are thrilled to have appointed Spencer Fearn and Mark Askwith as joint managers. And Race hopes the NCE club can enjoy success on and off the field in their centenary next season.

Fearn and Askwith have agreed two-year contracts at Muglet Lane and replaced Mick Norbury who resigned after 18 months in charge

Fearn is former owner of East Stirling FC and more recently was vice-chairman of Stockport County where he also did some coaching.

Askwith has been managing locally for 10 years since retiring from playing football and has achieved seven promotions . Fearn and Askwith were schoolboys at Sheffield United at the same time and in January this year Fearn joined Askwith at Joker when the club were seven- points adrift at the bottom of the County Senior League. They steered them out of relegation trouble and to the final of the County Senior League Cup.

Fearn said “ We are delighted to have this opportunity and the committee at Maltby and can’t wait to getting started. We know how tough this division is but we can promise that we will have a team that is fit and works hard for each other. We aim to build a team that features some of the best non-league talent in the area.”
