Former Basford United player Tommy Brookbanks is returning to the club as Vice Chairman.
Brookbanks, who recently stood down as manager of Coalville Town, arrives as Basford prepare for life at the highest level the club has played in the non-league football pyramid.
Basford Chairman Chris Munroe commented: “I am delighted to appoint Tom. I had no hesitation in appointing him to this new crucial role once I had met him several times.
“The club is really ready to embrace the challenges over the next few years and Tom will play a vital role in this”.
Brookbanks said: “It was clear to me that this was a perfect fit not only to come back to my roots in Nottingham, but also to commence another excellent period in the club’s history. I’m delighted to be back at Basford and looking forward to the journey.”
