Hall put in charge of Lions for the rest of the season
YOU can expect to see less of Jordan Hall on the pitch and more of him in the dug-out after the former Alfreton Town midfielder was put in charge of Heanor Town until the end of the season.
Hall says he is "thrilled" to take on the job and is keen to keep it on a more permanent basis.
He was given the job of interim manager last Saturday after the departure of Glenn Kirkwood and Craig Hopkins to Evo-Stik Division One club, Mickleover Sports.
And although the Lions are without a game this weekend, they will be preparing for Monday night's trip to Ilkeston for the quarter final of the Derbyshire Senior Cup.

"I'm 100% committed to Heanor and just can't wait to get started," said Hall.
"I'll hopefully keep the job now until the end of the season, as managing Heanor Town is definitely something I'd love to do.
"The only thing that could spoil it for me now is the weather.
"I'll probably take a bit of a back seat with regards playing for Heanor, as there are players who can fill my position and do a pretty good job.
"Glenn and Craig have left the club in a decent position.
"We're 10th in the Northern Counties East League Premier Division and it's only our first season in this league.
"We're 20 points off the top and 20 points off the bottom, so while there is no danger of us being relegated, there is little chance of winning the league either.
"We're also in the quarter final of the Derbyshire Senior Cup which, if it gets postponed again on Monday night, will be played on Tuesday.
"It would be nice to progress in that and maybe get a semi-final game against one of my old clubs, either Alfreton or Belper Town."
Although this is Hall's first non-League managerial role, he does have experience with a Sunday League side, Chesterfield Town.
And he has learnt plenty from his former managers, who he says will do a great job at Mickleover Sports.
"Glenn and Craig were the reason I joined Heanor Town," said Hall.
"They're both great managers who I'm sure will do well at Mickleover.
"I don't want to change things here too much. I'll not be pulling up any trees or anything.
"But there may be a couple of things that I will change just to put my mark on the team."
Long Eaton United are due to be in NCEL Premier Division action tomorrow, weather permitting, away to Maltby Main.
The sides drew 2-2 when they met at Grange Park earlier in the season.
Long Eaton are 13th in the table, two places above Maltby, but they have eight more points and four games in hand.
The Blues' League Cup third round tie at home to Scarborough Athletic, which was postponed in midweek, has been rearranged for Tuesday, March 12 (7.45pm).
