Haslam joined the Blues from Whitley Bay last summer as a coach to former boss Chris Hardy, but following his resignation as manager in September last year, Haslam and Bullock took the reigns as joint-managers on an interim basis to allow the club’s board to make a full assessment on their credentials to take Whitby forwards.

But after a number of positive results and performances during the period up until the season being ended in November, the joint-bosses have been given extended contracts.

With the services of team captain Daniel Rowe already secured, Haslam and Bullock hope that they can build something special at the Turnbull Ground and this two-year deal allows them to develop the squad and bring in the right players for them.

On the new deal, Haslam said: “I’m delighted to have signed a new two-year deal with Bully (Lee Bullock).

“I’m really looking forward to getting back together with him for training which we will start as soon as circumstances allow.

“We both want to help the club and this great squad develop.”

Haslam’s right-hand man Bullock added: “We can’t wait to get going again next season, and after the year everyone’s had we just want to get involved in football again as that’s what we do.

“The ambition is to keep driving this team on as they were developing into a good side.

“We look forward to seeing what we can do with them next season.”

The pair have already started preparations ahead of the 2021/22 PitchingIn Northern Premier League season with a number of new deals at the club set to be announced in the coming weeks.
