Daventry Town have announced that Arron Parkinson and Andy Marks have been appointed as joint First Team Managers.
Northampton-born Parkinson is no stranger to Town fans having made over 200 appearances in the Purple shirt.

The 6 foot 2 centre half was expected to sign on for Town for the 2015/2016 season however with the then Woodford United Manager Darran Foster returning to the Town to replace Allan Smart, Arron was offered and accepted the Player Managers role at the Byfield Road club.
He made 22 UCL Division 1 appearances last season and will register to play again for Town this season.
He has recently resigned from his position as Player Manager at Woodford United.
Parky has featured in 3 UCL winning sides – Twice with Town winning the Division 1 in 2007/2008 and Premier Division in2009/2010 and winning the Premier with Woodford United in 2005/2006. He was also captain of Southern League Leamington Town and Daventry Town.
Arron has also played for Banbury United and Brackley Town before joining Banbury based, Easington Sports.
Former Cogenhoe United Manager, Andy Marks, will work alongside Parkinson as Joint Manager. Marks has a decade of management experience behind him at step 5/6 and was in charge of the club when Town overcame his resilient team to win the Hillier Cup at Sixfields 3 0 in April 2014.
