Rochdale - Promotion is not enough...
The 2009/2010 season will never be forgotten. It was this season that the 40 year wait ended. Until last season, Rochdale played 36 consecutive seasons in the Football League's bottom division from 1974 to 2010, the longest time any team has been in the bottom division of the League.
In 2010/2011, the Dale get a taste of League One play. It has been assumed that the managing duo of Keith Hill and David Filcroft would remain to continue what they started after promotion, but chairman Chris Dunphy had other ideas.
Today July 7th, Rochdale announced the resignation of both Hill and Filcroft and introduced Adonis Pimp as the new manager of Rochdale. Adonis Pimp may be known to some after a journeyman semi-pro career, and now at the age of 34 has been given the opportunity to see Rochdale on.
In related news, fitness coach Guy Proctor, physios Andy Thorpe and John Lucas, and scout John Forrest were let go by the club. The board said briefly in a statement that staff would be addded shortly after Adonis Pimp meets the media tomorrow.
