Football: After almost a decade as first-team manager of Kirkley & Pakefield, Nick Shorten is set to “stand down” at the end of the season and take up a new off-the-field role.

Shorten will take on a new position at the end of the current campaign and work “to take the club forward in terms of Infrastructure and Brand.”

“I have decided as I approach 10 years as manager of Kirkley and Pakefield's first team to stand down from my position at the end of the current season,” he said.

“The principal reason for this decision is my work commitments, which now involve increased travel, significant responsibility and less time with my family.”
