Football: Newmarket Town chairman Kevin Grainger has appointed himself manager of the club.

However, he then walked away from the club stating that he felt he had taken the team as far as he could and would be unable to improve the side without greater investment in the squad.
As a result, Grainger, who has helped run the first team in the past, has taken over as manager. Colin Vowden will continue as assistant manager, while John Olive has taken over as a chairman.
