The club have also acted swiftly to appoint former Blackburn Rovers star Jansen's replacement and confirmed the appointment of current captain Paul Turnbull and coach Mike Jeffries as the club’s new first-team managerial team, Turnbull in a player/manager capacity.

 

Turnbull (pictured) will continue to play for the first team alongside his new job, as he takes on his first managerial role following a fantastic playing career full of experience in non-League and the Football League, which included over 250 appearances for Stockport County.

 

He will be joined in leading the first team by Jeffries, who takes on the role alongside his duties working in the Stockport County academy as Lead Professional Development Phase Coach.

 

He too brings with him a wealth of experience, having previously been an academy coach at Burnley, Bury and FC Halifax Town amongst others.

 

Manager Paul Turnbull told the club`s website: “I’m really grateful to have been given the opportunity to take my first steps into first-team management here at Stockport Town, a club I’ve loved being a part of since joining in the Summer. 

 

“I’ve really enjoyed playing under Matt since he brought me in to the club, and want to thank him for that and wish him well back at County, where I’m sure he’ll have a big impact.

 

“For Mike and I, who I’m delighted to have the chance to work alongside, we can’t wait to get started and help develop this exciting group of young players. Our attention now turns to Saturday’s home game against Sandbach United, and we look forward to seeing the Town fans down at Stockport Sports Village”.
