The lowdown on the new Redcar boss, Carl Jarrett.
A well-renowned coach in the north-east non-league scene, Jarrett takes the reigns at Redcar Athletic amidst somewhat of a low period.
The club suffered a record Northern League defeat on Saturday, whilst still in search of a first league win since the back end of November.
Despite the form, the new boss inherits a favourable situation, with a squad regarded as one of the best in the league, and a number of further additions to be expected in the coming days.
As the current season continues to massively subvert anticipation, what can Redcar expect from the new man at the helm, Carl Jarrett?
Here’s everything you need to know about the new first team manager…
An esteemed coach widely-regarded as one of the best in the region, Carl Jarrett weaved his legacy down the road with our neighbours, Marske United.
Jarrett enjoyed three spells with the Seasiders, totalling unforeseen success for such a small club across his tenure.
With Carl Jarrett at the helm, Marske United clinched two Northern League Division One titles, first in 2017, and then too the following season, where the club was granted promotion to the Northern Premier League East.
Already a club legend for his efforts in the Northern League, Jarrett continued to guide the Seasiders to every success, fighting at the very top of step four in their first season.
In 2020, Jarrett took Marske United to local cup glory, sealing the club’s second North Riding Senior Cup title after a six goal thrashing of Thornaby at Teasdale Park.
Having finished in the top eight twice during two curtailed campaigns, Marske United returned from the break in English football to challenge for promotion once more.
Second in a two-horse race with Liversedge, Jarrett’s side sank local rivals, Stockton Town, in the play-off final, clinching promotion to the Northern Premier League and step three of the English national league system.
There, his journey at the helm of the Seasiders came to a brief end, as he stepped aside owing to a run of poor results at the start of the season.
One much less poignant tenure later, Jarrett returned to Marske United to commence an impossible mission, survival: a mission of which the 55-year-old accomplished with games to spare.
