“Last week, we received an approach from another club, with a request to speak to Jamie. We agreed this would remain confidential to the club and the other party involved.

"We operate a transparent approach to all contracted staff (coaches and players) and therefore in line with this, made Jamie aware of the approach, allowing him to speak to the club if he so wished.

“Jamie has reflected over the weekend and has decided he wants to remain at the Bamber Bridge, pushing on with building a squad which is capable of challenging this season in the Northern Premier League.
