Halesowen Town have appointed Martin Sockett as the club’s assistant manager.
The former Redditch United and Rugby Town boss told the club’s website:
“I am absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to work again with Paul (Smith), having had successful times working with him previously at Bromsgrove and Redditch. He is one of, if not the best, managers around.
“We have had a great working and personal relationship for a number of years. Added to that, the opportunity to work together at such a great club as Halesowen is unbelievably exciting, and with the momentum which has already been created over the last two seasons, I hope I can bring my experience and knowledge to add to what has already been created, to get the club back in the upper echelons of non-league football where they belong.”
