The Moors currently sit bottom of the Toolstaion NCEL Division One league with four points. They have only won and drawn once in their last 24 league matches.

The former Dunkirk FC manager will be assisted by former Moorlands trainer Phil Skaymen and will bring in Chris Hamilton as a player/assistant manager. He is also looking to bring in a new physio and kit man to the Club.

Richardson has a level 2 coaching badge and is currently working towards his UEFA B licence.

He will take charge of Lincoln Moorlands Railway this Saturday, November 28, away at fourteenth placed Selby Town.

In a statement from Lincoln Moorlands Railway, Secretary, Mark Hobbs said:

“We had several people apply for the position once Mick Fairweather had resigned and Tom was the best of the lot by a long way, and the committee have given the full backing to Tom, who is confident we can get out of the position we are currently in.

“I wish Mick and Darren all the best for the future as they put so much work into the team”

The Club also thanked interim manager, Matt Wilson for taking over the team:

“On behalf of everybody at the club, we wish Tom the best of luck.”
