Frank Northwood

Joined as assistant manager to Roger Davies.
Became manager May 1985.

Frank was relieved of his position March 1992.

In his first full season in charge, Gresley lifted the West Midlands League runners-up trophy, setting off on an unbeaten 34-match run in the process the third best in Roversí history.

In 1987-88, Rovers won the Derbyshire Senior Cup for the first time and went on to retain the trophy for three more seasons another record.

They won the league cup in 1988-1989 before finally lifting the title 1990-1991 by a massive 16 points, an achievement that was almost overshadowed by Roversí heroics in reaching Wembley in the FA Vase Final the same year losing in a replay to Guisley.
