After Darren Beckett’s resignation last week, Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West club Easington Sports have announced that former player and manager Ben Milner will come in to take the manager’s role whilst coach Matt Giles will step up to become the assistant-manager.
The management pair will take charge for the first time together tomorrow against Woodstock Town.
The committee and players have been very impressed with the way in which things have gone this season, and so the main priority has been to make a decision that allows this progress and form to continue well into the season.
Matt Giles has been a significant part of this success and he has taken preparations for matches to a new level during his time at the club this season alongside Jake Butler the goalkeeping coach.
The club are therefore delighted that Giles has agreed to step up to take a more significant role whilst Ben Milner brings a wealth of experience of Hellenic and Southern League football to the management team.
The pair should form a formidable partnership supported by Jake Butler and physio Ali Whitrow.
