Stalybridge Celtic have confirmed the departure of assistant manager, Keith Briggs.

Briggs has opted to take up a full-time role at Championship outfit Sheffield United. The 35-year-old  has been working with the academy set up for the past two years.

Briggs, who enjoyed a professional career with the likes of Stockport County, Norwich City and Kidderminster Harriers, joined Celtic for a third spell at the start of this season.

He had previously been involved with the club in a player-manager capacity on two previous occasions.

Manager Steve Burr will now begin the process of recruiting a replacement for Briggs.

Celtic were knocked out of the FA Trophy at National League North Blyth Spartans on Saturday. Burr’s side were beaten 2-1.

The result leaves the club looking for a first away victory of the season.
