MARTIN Stephens has been appointed as the new manager of Bromyard Town.

He replaces Geoff Woodward after the Delahay Meadow outfit finished bottom of the West Midlands League Premier Division.

They won just seven games throughout the 2013-14 campaign and ended with a goal difference of -101.

Stephens, who has had spells in charge of Malvern Town and Archdales 73, has previously been Bromyard’s under 18s manager.

Ex-Town player Matt Oliver is now in charge of the under 18s and they will be returning to the Midland Floodlit Youth League next season.

Training and trials are due to commence towards the end of June.

A club statement said: “We wish them both every success and look forward to an enjoyable season.”
