St Neots Town manager Matt Clements will have a new number two alongside him when the 2017-18 EVO-STIK League Southern season kicks off.
The former Godmanchester Rovers boss, who guided the EVO-STIK League Southern Premier Division’s Saints to safety last season after succeeding Andy Davies in January, has named former AFC Sudbury first-team coach Matty Haniver as his assistant manager.
Former Cambridge United, Cambridge City and Histon star Haniver, who stepped down at the Ryman Premier club following their relegation in April, is no stranger to Clements who was previously the assistant manager at The Stutes.
Before joining the Yellows last summer in the Ryman League’s top flight, Haniver also enjoyed a stint in charge of Eastern Counties League Premier Division outfit Godmanchester Rovers, pictured.
Clements has already been strengthening his management team with the recruitment of former Cambridge United, King’s Lynn Town and Kettering Town player and FA coach David Bridges as first-team coach.
Clements, Haniver and Bridges are now preparing for their first outing together at The Premier Plus Stadium on Saturday 8 July when the Saints host Cambridge United in their first high-profile pre-season friendly of the summer.
