JUSTIN Miller has been announced as the new manager of Purton FC.

Chairman Alan Eastwood said "Having lost Chris (Pethick) and his team it was imperative that we brought in new management quickly and this we have done.

Miller will be assisted by two other former Purton players, Dave Gee and Nick McCrae.

Eastwood said: "They bring a wealth of experience to the club having all played at higher levels elsewhere. They are well-liked and well-known by all the Purton players and local supporters.

"Justin may also be adding a further assistant to help him with the new campaign.

"The club is still short of a second string manager but are minded that if they appoint someone they will apply to enter the new Hellenic Division two in preference to rejoining the Wiltshire Premier League".
