Godmanchester Rovers have named Matt Clements as their new manager.
The 37 year-old steps up two levels to take over at the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division runners-up after previously managing Cambs Premier outfit Hardwick.
His appointment was confirmed last night by new Rovers chairman Karly Hurst, who was elected to succeed long-serving Keith Gabb at the club’s annual meeting on Thursday (June 4).
Clements said: “I’m honoured to have been offered and accepted the role.
“I am confident that with the ability and talent of the players, combined with the fantastic infrastructure within the club, I can keep up and add to the great work that has already been done.”
