Gareth Roberts is delighted to announce that manager Mark Bower and assistant manager Danny Boshell have signed contract extensions that will run until the end of the 2020/21 season.
Former Guiseley boss Bower was appointed in September 2016 and guided the club to National League North safety in his first campaign. He took the reigns again in the 2017/18 season and led Avenue to a 7th place finish and into the semi-finals of the play-offs.
As a player, he made over 200 appearances for neighbours Bradford City and has now established himself as one of the best young managers in non-league football with Avenue.
Boshell was Bower’s right-hand man during their time at Guiseley, combining a role in the dugout with duties in the centre of the Lions’ midfield. He assumed the same role upon joining Avenue in September 2016 and made 28 appearances last season as the club surged into the play-off semi-finals.
