PAUL LINES has explained his reasons for his U-turn after rejoining Nostell MW as boss – a week after stepping down, writes LEON WOBSCHALL.

Lines and chairman Simon Turfrey are back at the NCEL club, with talks with club officials about the way forward clearing the path for a return.

Lines said: “The chairman had another meeting with the club and he put his ideas forward to them and then called me and I said I’d go back.

“It is now all about moving the club forward and keeping them heading in the right direction going into next season.

“The club need to back up the plans that the chairman has laid out and we need to bring some investors to the club as well.

“We’re hoping to achieve an academy status to bring through young players from the Under-16s to the Under-19s and then through into the first team, and go with the plans from there.

“I can only go by what I have been told and I have said if I come back to the club, this is what I want to have in place.

“I regret leaving all the people at the club because there are some really good and hardworking people there from the club staff to the stewards.

“I don’t feel I have anything to prove.

“My remit last season was to save the club and now I want to keep the club heading in the right direction.”

“It is harder fighting it out at the bottom every season than it is to manage a team who are at the top but I think we can be up there. Why can’t we be the team to challenge?”

Billy Miller is the new manager at Tadcaster Albion after leaving Harrogate Railway. He will be assisted by ex-Leeds defender Matt Heath.
