Scott Bartlett has been appointed Weston-super-Mare manager.
The former Forest Green Rovers academy manager has returned to Weston for a second spell as manager on a three-year deal. On his reappointment, Bartlett said: “I am delighted to commit my future to WSM.
“My immediate goal now is to work with the board to build a squad that the supporters deserve and one that will challenge at the top of the table. Relegation was unfortunate but it gives us – the management team, the board and the supporters – a chance to rebuild and rebuild properly in a good way.
“Our training facilities are impressive for this level and the club has moved on in that respect since I was last here. It’s important we sign the right players, we need a squad that are desperate to fight for the club.
“I will spend the next 24 hours discussing players with Mark McKeever, who has done a great job of steadying the ship. He has been a credit to the club and I am looking forward to working with him.
“In addition, I hope to bring in an experienced assistant player/coach who has played at a much higher level, hoping they have a similar impact to the one Chris Barker did. I hope you share my excitement for the season ahead, we should be respectful of the league we are in but enjoy the challenge it brings.”
