Steve Huntington has rejoined the management team at the Town Ground and will assist manager Glen Clarence, alongside Steve Hamilton.

Clarence said: “I’m delighted Steve has come back, I totally understood his reasons for leaving at the time, but I feel that he has been missed around the place.

“We are going into this campaign with a different outlook and approach to which will be a different but again very strong league.

“I think we have the right balance with both Steve’s working alongside each other and I’m looking forward to the campaign ahead.”

Huntington said: “It was right to leave at the time, it’s now right to come back and finished what we started.

“I love the club and the community and we need to deliver something for them and for us.”

Hamilton added: “I met with Steve Huntington and I have personally met him for the first time and after a healthy and open discussion we are pleased to have him back onboard the management team.

“We’ve put some plans and guidelines in place and I look forward to working with him next season.”
