As a result, the Daily Mail revealed that the reserve team boss is set to take the reins as first-team manager for one game only as they will play two sides simultaneously.
And supporters believe that the above would be a good decision for the club to take and made their feelings clear on social media.

Well, it’s his team that’s going to be playing, so it makes sense!

We’ve not even played yet and fans are already conceding. I trust that we’ll still have a team to compete and Critchley is the man to get a performance out of them. A really good decision and a deserved career opportunity for Critchley. Will be exciting to see. #YNWA
