Ashton & Backwell United have announced Charlie Rich as their new manager, following Stuart Jones’ departure last month.

Jones had been in charge of The Stags for three years after replacing Paul Waring and Rich Ford in May 2018.

Jones told the North Somerset Times his reason for leaving was that he wanted a "new challenge and something different.”

And Rich has ended his playing career to take up the role.

“Ashton & Backwell United are extremely pleased to announce our new first team manager, Charlie Rich,” said a club statement published on Twitter.
