Southern League Division One Central club Leighton Town have confirmed the appointment of former Ampthill Town boss….
….Craig Bicknell as the new man at the helm at Bell Close.
Following Craig Wells’ departure earlier this month, Leighton chairman Terry McCafferty moved quickly to snap up his man.
Bicknell has an impressive track record – last season he guided Ampthill to runners-up spot in the Molten Spartan South Midlands League, won the League Cup and reached the quarter-finals of the FA Carlsberg Vase.
A club statement read: “Leighton Town Football Club are pleased to announce the appointment of Craig Bicknell as the first-team manager.
“Craig has had a somewhat meteoric rise in football management and sees our situation as a progressive step for him and his coaches.”
