Hawkins Takes Bedworth Helm

Nick Hawkins is the new manager of Evo-Stik League Division One South club Bedworth United.

The Greenbacks announced the appointment of Hawkins (pictured) on Saturday night, a few hours after their 3-1 home defeat to Sheffield in Division One South under caretaker manager Chris Tullin.

Tullin, 30, had been asked to hold the fort following last Sunday's resignation of manager Ady Fuller. On Tuesday, he guided the Greenbacks to a 1-1 draw at home to Chasetown but has now stepped aside.

Hawkins, 28, had been caretaking himself at Eastwood Town last week following the resignation of his joint manager Chris Shaw. The former Nottingham Forest player and Nostell Miners Welfare manager quit Coronation Park on Tuesday night in the wake of a 3-1 reverse at home to Loughborough Dynamo.

On Friday the Badgers appointed former Arnold Town manager Gary Hayward as their new manager.
