Matlock Town can now confirm that coach Danny Cox, goalkeeping coach Adam Sollitt and physio Mark Mullins will all continue their roles under manager Dave Hoole and assistant player-manager Shaun Harrad.

Adam Sollitt known as Sol to most began his playing career in 1995 and had a career that took in teams like Barnsley FC, Gainsborough Trinty, Kettering Town, Northampton Town, Rushden and Diamonds, Scarborough FC, Morecambe FC and Worksop Town before joining the Gladiators in the 2009/2010 season making the number one shirt his own and in his three years and eighty six appearances he became a fan favourite before having to depart the club due to increased work commitments. Sol’s role at the club will be continuing as goalkeeper coaching using his knowledge and experience to work with our goalkeepers.
