Uhlsport Hellenic League Premier Division club Ascot United have announced that Derek Sweetman….
….has joined Jeff Lamb and Paul McGrotty to bring his knowledge and experience to the first-team on the eve of what they are hoping will be a busy season.
Sweetman is widely respected in local football and left Holyport at the end of last season after four successful years in charge.
Sweetman explained the reason for joining Ascot: “After spending the last four months recharging my batteries I was very lucky to have a good few offers to return to the game but Ascot was the one that appealed to me most.
“A forward-thinking club with plenty of ambition and a cracking set up as well as some really genuine people. The one thing that sealed it for me was Jeff Lamb. As a young player Jeff played for me at Marlow and we have stayed in contact over the years and he has turned into a very good bright young manager.
“Jeff and Paul have started to build something really exciting here and I am looking forward to working alongside them both as well as with a great group of players”
