EX-SUDS PAIR SAIL IN WITH YACHTS
FORMER AFC Sudbury management duo Jamie Godbold and Andy Reynolds have taken charge of Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties Premier outfit Wroxham.
The pair previously led Sudbury to the Ryman Premier Division but were sacked last September following relegation.
A Yachtsmen shake-up has led to the departure of joint bosses Tom Parke and Ross Potter and their assistant Dom Jones, with their youth policy being blamed for patchy results.
Club chairman Lee Robson said: “Jamie is a hugely-respected coach and manager and his partnership with Andy Reynolds has delivered a track record of success at a number of clubs.
“I am delighted he has agreed to work with us to continue to rebuild the club and get us back competing at the high end of football in the region.”
“Tom, Ross and Dom leave with our thanks and best wishes for all of their passion and hard work in reviving the club’s fortunes and helping us readjust following last season’s relegation from the Isthmian League.
“Recent results haven’t been as good as they could have been and maybe the club has to accept that in stressing youth development rather than team development hampered Tom and Ross making as much progress as hoped. A review by the board felt it was time to make a change and inject some structure and energy back into our season.”
Godbold, UEFA A Licence coach, was on Stoke City’s books for six years and later played for Lowestoft Town where he made more than 500 appearances. He began his managerial career at Kirkley & Pakefield and is also the local FA county coach development manager.
Reynolds, who played with Godbold at Lowestoft, is also the Suffolk FA under 18s manager.
