New era for Louth Town as Daryl Clare takes over reins
DARYL Clare kicks off his first season in the dugout tomorrow when his Louth Town side take on Bradford outfit Albion Sports (3pm).
The former Grimsby Town striker is looking forward to his first taste of football management after taking over in the summer following the departure of former boss Paul Walden.
And the rookie manager will be looking to build on the White Wolves' only victory of their pre-season program, which they recorded on Tuesday evening with a 2-1 win over Boston Town.
Andy Willoughby opened the scoring for the visitors, with Matt Kennedy adding a second before Boston Town's player-manager Ian Dunn grabbed a consolation.

Before that, Louth had lost five of the previous seven pre-season ties, including a 2-0 defeat to Grimsby Town's Youth team.
But speaking after Tuesday's victory, Clare was positive ahead of the big kick-off tomorrow.
He said: "We have been threatening to play like that for a few games now and the team held their shape well
"Organisation and communication were first class and we cut out the silly mistakes.
"We looked really dangerous on the break and it was a great all round team performance."
In Albion Sports, Louth will face a team who finished fourth in their first season in the Northern Counties East League, eight places above Town in 12th.
Louth season's continues next Wednesday when they take on Bottesford Town in the NCEL League Cup (7.45pm).
That match is followed by an FA Cup extra preliminary tie against Glossop North End (3pm) on Saturday August 11.
