Closed season Management merry-go-round

The Football league sees a lot of management changes during the closed season, but the non-league game has it’s fair share as well.

This is not meant to be a definitive list, just local "happenings" that I know of from various websites… I’m sure there are others I have missed !!

In no particular order:

Paul Cox to Mansfield Town
Jamie Brough / Craig Armstrong in at Eastwood Town
Simon Snow joins Radford FC
Dean Short takes on the parlous job of leading Sutton Town AFC out of the doldrums
Gary Hayward takes over from Paul McFarland at Blackwell, Paul takes up the position of General Manager
Gary Castledine to Clipstone
Brett Marshall goes back to Retford Utd
Jody Cauldwell becomes part of Brett’s backroom staff
Graham Walker signs as Brett’s Assistant
Gedling MW recruit Lee Boulton to replace Walker
Dave Bradshaw and Dave Marlow take the reigns at Linby CW
Glapwell have Keith Easom and Graham Charlesworth in charge
John Ramshaw goes to Shepshed Dynamo, and recruits Chris “Chalkie” White as his assistant along with Nick Kennerdale as coach.
Kaz Fawli in control at Greenwood Meadows
Paul Rawden -- New manager of Ollerton Town FC together with back room staff of Liam Best and Matt Ottley
Lee Scott takes the helm at Harworth CI
Kuki Morley to assist Lee Boulton at Gedling MW
Tony Lormor appointed as coach at Sutton Town AFC
John Adams in at Radcliffe Olympic

Should be settling down a bit now as pre-season training has already started for some teams, while friendlies commence very early in July.
