BROTHERS IN ARMS
BRANTHAM Athletic have named Michael Brothers and Matt Carmichael as new joint managers.
Former Harwich & Parkeston boss Carmichael has been coaching Essex & Suffolk Border League frontrunners Little Oakley, while Brothers, a striker, has been playing for Eastern Counties Premier strugglers FC Clacton.
The pair have taken over from Brantham legend and ex-Colchester youth Paul Skingley, who has moved upstairs to take up a senior committee post.
“This is the right time, the right club and the right opportunity, both for myself and Michael,” said Carmichael. “I feel it’s the right time for me personally to step up.”
