Yet again Dean Windass has left his beloved Tigers. He has set out to explore the uncharted waters of football management. His first port of call is as first mate (assistant manager) to his one time boss, Colin Todd, at Coca Cola League Two, Darlington F.C.

Windass played for Todd at Bradford City in his second spell with the West Yorkshire club. He has been appointed player/assistant manager of the perennial North East underachievers.

The last time Colin Todd and Dean Windass were together Windass rose to third highest goal scorer for Bradford City, with 76 league goals and 87 goals in total. The Quakers will be hoping that some of that goal scoring panache will rub off on them.
