Management update - assistant appointed

Backroom staff strengthened by former pro

Oldland Abbotonians new manager Jon Toy has worked quickly in securing new faces to the club under his leadership. The match at Devizes on Saturday saw four debutants in the squad plus a newcomer in the technical area as the club enters its next exciting stage.

Following the decision of assistant manager Ian Logan-Giles to move on, Toy was sharp to replace him bringing in former Exeter City defender Marc Ford as his assistant. The new boss said "Marc and I have been friends for a long time and played together in our prime (many years ago!). Marc has a lot of experience and wide range of contacts in and around the Bristol area, he also has an abundance of football knowledge which will be a big help with my aim of building on and progressing with the young squad we have here at Oldland and the excellent youth set-up."

Ford was present on Saturday and will form part of the future core matchday squad alongside physio Pat Delaney who is still very much part of the team. Manager Toy is looking for an experienced older head to protect the youngsters on the pitch and hopes to announce the capture of one shortly. He added "Marc's involvement is a massive plus and I am glad he has come on board, I am really looking forward to work with him this season. We had to act swiftly to bring in four new signings at the weekend due to injury, unavailability and only having a small squad at the outset. As well as bringing along the likes of 18 year-old Brad Lewis, who has featured in almost every squad this season, further players will be coming in shortly to bolster the numbers and improve on what we have."

Welcome to The O's Marc!
