New Joint Managers for Badshot Lea

Combined Counties League Premier Division club Badshot Lea have announced the appointment of Nick Sowden and Ryan Scott as joint first team managers.

They have both played football at the highest level, with Scott (pictured) having to retire prematurely from the pro game with Aldershot Town through serious injury.

He has more recently played for AFC Totton, Farnborough and Gosport Borough, before joining Badshot Lea last season.

Sowden has been around Badshot Lea since youth football, before he moved to Aldershot Town. He progressed through from the youth team and into the first team.

Since leaving Aldershot Town, he has had spells at Met Police, Godalming Town, Ash United and a player-coach role at Farnham Town.

A club statement reads: "They have both demonstrated a vibrant, enthusiastic and positive attitude towards both the club and the role and we offer them both congratulations on their new managerial partnership. The club are very excited about the appointment and preparations for the 2013/14 season can finally start in earnest.

"We would also like to place on record our thanks to Trevor Norris for the hard work and commitment he has shown in not only last season as first team coach but also during the last week in the role of caretaker manager."
