The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Non- League Football -

Dave Stratton has been named as­the­new­bossofUnit­edCoun­ties League Pre­mier Di­vi­sion club Black­stones.

The former Yax­ley cen­tre­for­ward has been handed his first man­age­rial role at Lin­coln Road.

Stratton was due to be in­tro­duced to the Stones play­ers ahead of their derby clash against ti­tle- chas­ing Spald­ing last night.

Care­taker boss Gary Peace re­mained in charge for that match with Stratton tak­ing over the reins for a home clash against Long Buckby on Satur­day.

“I just wanted to get back into foot­ball,” said Stratton.

“I’ve been out of the game for acou­ple­o­fyearss­in­cepack­ing up play­ing and felt it was time to get in­volved again.

“This is the first job I have ap­plied for and luck­ily enough I got it.

“I will bring a fresh ap­proach to the ta­ble and it is all about get­ting things right for next sea­son.

“The only ex­pec­ta­tion the club have for this sea­son is stay­ing up and we’ll cer­tainly do that.”

Stratton will be as­sisted by Ron Beech and has al­ready put in a seven- day ap­proach for a player whose iden­tity he is keep­ing un­der wraps.
