Kidsgrove Athletic have appointed club legend Scott Dundas as the new manager of the club.

The former Chasetown, Norton United and Newcastle Town manager takes over from Ryan Austin who left the club last week after just over three years in charge.

During his time as a player, Dundas scored more than 100 goals for Kidsgrove including 53 in one season (1997/98) where he helped the club to win the North West Counties League as well as the League cup and making the semi-finals of the FA Vase.

Speaking about his return, Dundas said: “It’s surreal with everything going on at the moment but I’m 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 and attractive football and my teams score goals, and I want to be competing at the right end of the table.”

Meanwhile, 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 Ant Buckle who has previously managed the Grove.
