The management team will now be looking to strengthen the squad in preparation for the superbly-run Cheshire League, which is a fine standard of football.

Storks chairman Andy Vaughan said of the appointment: "We have been aware of Dave and his players for a while.

"And when we lost our management team at the end of last season we immediately approached him.

"Dave and Mark's record in youth football is second to none and they fit the management profile we were looking for with a local, young, talented, hungry and confident squad of players.

"We are also delighted that Darren is joining us after a season at St Helens Town.

"Having previously been at Billinge for three seasons, Darren knows the club well and the club knows, both, how good and passionate he is as a coach and the attributes he will bring to the club.

"It is now time for the club to prepare - both on and off the pitch - for an exciting 2022/23 campaign."
