Meanwhile Appleford said: “It is with great excitement that I have accepted the offer and opportunity to become Mildenhall manager. Although it was a very hard decision to leave Stowmarket Town, the chance to work again in the Ridgeons Premier and with a club like Mildenhall was too good to refuse.

“My links with the club through Mildenhall College of Technology where I work have already given me an insight to the club and how well it is run by the chairman and committee. The club shares my football philosophies and we will be looking to develop the local youth talent, whilst mixing with the more established senior players.

“I am looking forward to the challenge ahead. I know it will be a tough task following a manager like Simon Charlton but me and the club are looking for continued success through good, young hungry players who want to achieve.

“I am sure the fans will get behind the players again for the coming season and support the long term plan and ambitions of me and the club.”
