Bedford Town have put their faith in manager Mark Ducket for next season.

The former Eagles player took the reins in January, and along with assistant Martin Standen and coaches Ronayne Marsh-Brown and Gil Octave, he has agreed to continue next season.

Speaking to the club’s website, owner and director Jon Taylor said: “I have on behalf of the other owners and the club committee decided the right decision would be to re-employ Mark and his management team at the helm for our next challenge to get out of Step 4.

“The manager and his team have worked tirelessly behind the scenes to assemble a promising squad that, with a few additions, could be certainly a side to be reckoned with. I have been very happy with the results in the last two months and I don’t believe that there are many young managers with the appetite and ambition to take our great club forward.”
