Wayne is no stranger to the club, being one of Nigel Danby's first signings when he took over from Paul Marshall in November 2005.
He signed for Bradford Park Avenue in 1995 upon his release from Bradford City and was a very consistent and creative performer whether as a sweeper or in central midfield in over 400 games for the club. He had a spell away at Halifax Town before returning to Avenue in September 1996. He was player of the season in 1998-99. He left on a permanent basis in January 2004 by signing for Frickley Athletic. However, in November 2004 he left for Emley before moving to Goole AFC and then Ossett Town in the Unibond Premier League.
Wayne has previously been assistant manager at Guiseley and Bradford Park Avenue. He arrives at the Victoria Pleasure Grounds from Hemsworth Miners Welfare, who play in the Northern Counties (East) League.
Wayne will officially take over on Tuesday for our home fixture against Farsley AFC.
