FOOTBALL: Haverhill Rovers have appointed Peter Betts as first team manager.
The 24-year-old was previously reserve team manager at the club and has taken over from caretaker manager Neil Farlie.
Despite his young age, Betts has been reserve team manager at the club since just after the turn of the century.
During his time in this post he established himself as a consistently good manager, the culmination of his success being when the team were treble winners of the Eastern Counties Reserve Teams League South Division, Eastern Counties Reserve Teams Cup and Suffolk Senior Cup in 2007/08.
At the end of 2007/08 Betts resigned as first team manager to go over to the USA for five months and work as a coach for the New York Red Bulls of the MLS, returning to the UK just before becoming first team manager.
Reserve team manager Ben Cowling has also been promoted to first team player/assistant manager to Betts.
