Non-league football: Stafford appoint Brindley as manager
STAFFORD Rangers have appointed Steve Bull's assistant, Chris Brindley, as their new manager.
Brindley, a former team-mate of Bull's at Wolves who joined him at Marston Road during the summer, will take charge for the Blue Square North game at Farsley on Saturday.
In a statement posted on Rangers' website, Brindley said: "It has been a very difficult few days. I feel sorry, very sorry, for Steve and I certainly did not realise the situation that the club were in when I came in to help him.
"He has done a good job in difficult times and didn't get the credit he deserved. Hopefully, he will be back sooner rather than later.

"I've stayed on for a number of reasons. I love the game and I enjoy working here. In the difficult times that we all find ourselves in, I didn't want to be out of work, and, I think I can help the club.
Brindley held his first training session in charge last night. He said: "The next 10-15 days are going to be my most important at the club. My only concern at the moment is to put out the best team available at Farsley and at home to Telford on Boxing Day.
"We've got three days to strengthen a bit further and we're working to try to bring in a few faces in the immediate future. It's not going to be as bad as some people fear."
