Former professional footballer and highly respected FA A-Licensed coach Lee Elam has been unveiled as the new manager of Toolstation NCEL Premier Division side Eccleshill United.
The Eagles have revealed that Elam, who was a player at Exeter City, Yeovil Town and Morecambe, contacted the club on Tuesday morning to express an interest in taking over as boss following the resignation of Sean Regan.
A club statement says Elam's interest was "flattering" considering his CV that also includes an impressive coaching background.
He has coached at Bradford City's Academy and he is currently the head of his own Pro Elite Academy that is also based in the city.
It adds: "Eccleshill United are thrilled with the appointment and would like to wish Lee and his future backroom staff the very best.
"Elam will be taking the Eagles on into pre-season and the NCEL Premier Division campaign, in which we look forward to seeing Elam and the side excel."
