WARRINGTON Town manager Paul Carden and assistant Mark Beesley have signed new two-year deals to remain at the club.
The pair joined the Yellows in October 2016 and led the club to third place in their two full seasons in charge.
They won the Northern Premier League play-offs, beating South Shields away in the final, back in 2019 but were cruelly denied promotion by a heartbreaking extra-time defeat to King’s Lynn Town in the super play-off a week later.
Carden said: “We’re delighted to extend our time at Warrington and really looking forward to continuing what we have been building here since we arrived. The last two seasons have been frustrating for everyone and it’s hard to believe that we are the last team to win the league playoff final and it was two years ago.
“Promotion is always our aim and we will be adding players to the squad to improve us and hopefully make that next step. Looking forward to seeing you all as soon as we can.”
The last two seasons have both been curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic, with several of the Yellows squad from last season making temporary moves to the Welsh Premier League to continue playing.
Details on squad news and player retentions is likely to follow ahead of pre-season starting next month.
Chairman Toby Macormac added: “I am really pleased that Paul and Mark have extended their stay at the club in which for me underlines their unwavering belief in what we are trying to achieve.
“In completed full seasons as a pairing we have never finished outside of the playoffs and whilst we face a tough season ahead I’m sure we’ll be as competitive as we can. We’ll need everyone’s support next season as the journey continues and one that I’m pleased Paul and Mark are a part of.”
