Boston Town have appointed Leon Marsh as manager of their new reserve team.
He will be assisted by Ben Lawton - and the ambitious pair have immediately targeted winning some long overdue silverware for the club.
Leon has impressed during his two-year stint as manager of Boston & District Saturday Football League side Fosdyke. He took on the job after the club had been relegated and got them promoted back to Division 1 in his first season as boss. This was followed up with a 5th place finish in his second season.
He and Ben both have a wealth of experience in local football and are currently doing their coaching badges.
First team manager Gary Edgley said: "First of all I would like to thank all the people that showed an interest in the reserve team manager position.
"I have personally spoken to several candidates that I thought would be good appointments, but I was very pleased with Leon’s attitude when I met him and his passion for the game and a real drive to do well. Also I think young players will respond well to him which is key. I am looking forward to working with Leon and his assistant Ben.
"This is another step in the right direction for the club and we are all working hard behind the scenes to keep pushing this club in the right direction and quickly."
Leon said: "Me and Ben would like to thank the chairman and Gary for welcoming us and trusting us getting on board with Boston Town.
"It's a massive opportunity at such a big club that's going in the right direction.
"I'm looking forward to working with Gary on developing some young players who can make the step up to the first team and also add some silverware to the club."
