Following the departure of manager Ryan Austin, club legend Scott Dundas has returned as the new man in charge.

 

Dundas, who famously scored 53 goals in one season in the 1997/98 campaign, helped `Grove to a league title, the League Cup and a famous run to the FA Vase Semi-Final in his tenure with the club.

 

Dundas told https://www.kidsgroveathleticfc.com: Its surreal with everything going on at the moment but Im absolutely delighted to be Kidsgrove Athletic manager.

 

I started here in 1992 with Pete Ward so to be back as the manager is fantastic and I have a great rapport with the fans.

 

I like to play fast, attractive football and my teams score goals, and I want to be competing at the right end of the table.

 

Vice-chairman Ian Cooper said: "The club are extremely pleased with Scott's appointment and given Scott's history with the club I'm sure it will be popular with our supporters as well.

 

"With all clubs facing uncertain times, Scott will be given time to build the team he wants, to play the football he wants to play."

 

Dundas will be accompanied by Anthony Buckle, who has previously managed the Grove.

 

Kidsgrove earlier announced that all-time top goal scorer Anthony Malbon has agreed a new two-year deal with the club.

 

The forward has scored 147 goals for `Grove since he joined back in January 2015 from Stalybridge Celtic.

 

This season Malbon has scored 15 goals in all competitions, 11 of which have come in the league and in that time he has scored one hat-trick which came in the 5-0 home win against Wisbech Town back in November.

 

The 28-year-old has been the sides top goalscorer in every season that he has been at the club and last season he scored an incredible total of 32 goals.
