GULLS MEMORIES FROM THIS DAY IN TIME
2013 – ALAN KNILL TAKES CHARGE AT PLAINMOOR
With Martin Ling on long term sick leave and United struggling in League Two, ex-Scunthorpe and Bury man Alan Knill was appointed as temporary manager. The appointment was initially a success as Knill guided United to safety. He was then given the job on a permanent basis, and that’s when the success quickly dried up. A New Year’s day defeat at Plymouth Argyle was the final straw, and with United sitting 23rd in the league, Knill was sacked and replaced by fans favourite Chris Hargreaves. He’s not had another managerial job since then, but has had opportunities as Chris Wilder’s assistant at Northampton, Sheffield United and Middlesbrough, before becoming part of the Wales staff under Rob Page.
