I am giving him a chance, just repeating what the Chairman said. We had a manager who made comments and they came back to haunt him remember  ;D

As I  said, I liked what I saw last week when Shaw Lane were on tv and welcome his appointment and, like every other manager, I will give him time and hope he is not driven out by the boo boys as he tries to get the lads playing his way. I have only ever called for one manager to be sacked and that was Moyes at United :D

Onwards and upwards and looking forward to the next chapter in our History.


And the hole gets deeper.

Welcome Craig, good luck, can you bring some of that Shaw Lane team with you, especially a striker.

Do hope Hawley stays on. Slightly surprised he hasn't got the gig for the rest of the season. Elliott more used to being near the top of the table at Shaw Lane. Bit different at a higher level near the drop zone. Wish him well of course. Certainly an interesting appointment.

Cannot see why you say that, was merely quoting what DN said last week.  I have said I will back him as I have done previous managers and thought Shaw Lane were unlucky against Mansfield last week, if he instills that into the team then we will soon be out the relegation zone. Not sure what else you read into my post to come up with your comment to be honest.

Former Harrogate player. Funny old game.
also played for Ferriby, Stocksbridge, Farsley Celtic, Guiseley and Doncaster Rivers, plus another couple of lower ranked South Yorkshire teams.
He who would valiant be , 'gainst all disaster.
Let him in constancy follow the master.
There's no discouragement shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent, to be a Pilgrim.

Well done Mr Newton for keeping to your statement when you said you wanted a experienced manager who knows the non league scene and players who ply their trade in it, Craig Elliot as proved it, This is a exiting signing for BUFC, let us hope Craig and his backroom team can  bring the good times back to BUFC like the last northern pair of managers Scott & Hurst did,  Welcome onboard to you and your team Craig and good luck in your challenges ahead. UP THE PILGRIMS.

Whoops too many shandies , stand corrected, now done.

We'll have to call him Mr. Elliot  so as not to confuse with our Craig!   :)

Looks like we had to pay for his services, as he was on a contract until 2019.
Apparently they came to an agreement.

That's something else DN said wouldn't happen because BUFC couldn't afford it.

The board must have wanted Craig enough to come to an agreement with Shaw Lane over the remainder of his contract.
