Wantage Town newly promoted to the Southern Football League have announced their Management Team for next season.

First Team Appointments Made
Wantage Town FC is pleased to announce that Tom Austin and Matt Biddle have been appointed as joint first-team managers for the coming season with Roy Clark as an assistant.

Having sifted through more than a dozen applications the duo stood out at interview with their enthusiasm, planning and vision for taking the club into the Southern League Division One Central following on from winning the Hellenic League Premier Division last season.

Both are former Wantage players, are local, and have relatively recent experience of playing at the Southern League level, meaning they have a sound knowledge of the club and local players and have some good contacts to bolster the squad.

And Clark, being a former Oxford United professional and Wantage Town player, brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience of the game at the higher level.

Following their appointment talks are already underway with a view to retaining as many of last season’s title-winning squad as possible.

All three were in charge of the clubs’ Development team last season, and impressed by steering them to the runners-up spot in their league, and are relishing the challenge of transferring their skills to a higher level.
