The club shall make an interim appointment in due course

Finding themselves back in the North West Counties, McNally slowly assembled a side that was hard working and good to watch, in the Covid hit 20-21 season he took the team to the First Round proper of the FA Cup, after notable victories over Lancaster City & Stafford Rangers.

Building on that success United finished second last season behind Macclesfield in the North West Counties, facing a Play-off against Southern League Cinderford Town, Paul McNally showed in full what he built over the past seasons with an impressive 5-1 victory that propelled them back in to the NPL Set up.

United head to the first game on Tuesday against Runcorn Linnets without their talismanic manager in the dugout.
