FC United boss Karl Marginson has announced a backroom re-shuffle in a bid to get more from his Rebels’ staff.
The move sees FC’s youth-team manager Chuks Akuneto promoted to first-team coach, with Dave Brown replacing him in charge of the club’s juniors.
Akuneto’s step-up means assistant Roy Soule will no longer need to regularly work alongside him on matchdays.
Soule will instead team up with United’s head of player development Darren Lyons in finding and nurturing young talent while also assessing future opponents.
Marginson said: “I’ve thought long and hard about these changes and feel they will help us take greater advantage of the individual strengths within my backroom team.
“Chuks’ primary responsibility will be for training and tactics, freeing up Souley to make better use of his years of experience in scouting and reporting on teams.”
FC, unbeaten in five, will be out to add further weight to their Evo-Stik Premier promotion assault with victory at Worksop.
