Angelo Harrop joins Braintree|
Former Sudbury boss switches to the Dunmow Group Stadium
Braintree Town have appointed 35-year old Angelo Harrop as their First Team Manager. The former Colchester United player has been involved in the management and coaching of Stanway, Brightlingsea and Sudbury, who he guided to the FA Cup First Round last season.
Chairman Lee Harding was delighted with his appointment: "We spoke to a number of potential new managers but Angelo's desire and passion for the game really impressed us. I loved his infectious enthusiasm and believe he will do well for us. The hard work starts now!"
Angelo Harrop said: "I see this as a fantastic opportunity and one I will absolutely relish. The fans can be assured that they will have the hardest working manager in the league. I would like to thank my former club AFC Sudbury for allowing me to embark on this journey and our memories shared through the season and the FA cup will live with me forever."
The new Iron boss hopes to bring his first signing to the Club this week and will be chatting to members of last season's squad. More news of the development of the Iron squad and additional pre-season friendlies when we have it!
Jerry Carter heads to Maldon & Tiptree
and has stepped down as a director of the Club
Jerry Carter has stepped down as a director of the Club and has subsequently accepted the Chairmanship of Maldon & Tiptree FC.
Jerry said: "the reason for my resignation was initially to concentrate on my family and some other business interests. It is with a heavy heart I will cease to be involved with the day today running of the Club. However, my family's business will continue to sponsor and support the Chairman and the club. Since standing down, fate moves in mysterious ways and I have accepted an offer to be Chairman of Maldon & Tiptree FC. I wish Lee and everyone at the Club success and now look to my footballing future in Maldon."
Chairman Lee Harding paid tribute: "Jerry has been a great friend and help to the Club and I'd like to thank him for his support over many years. We appreciate his continued support and wish him all the very best in his new role at Maldon & Tiptree."
