Stanway Rovers appoint caretaker manager

STANWAY Rovers have appointed ex-player Wayne Bond as caretaker manager for the rest of the season.

Bond replaces Steve Downey who was relieved of his duties following Rovers’ 2-1 defeat at Newmarket Town.

The result left Stanway sixth from bottom having won just five of their 17 league matches this season - though Downey did guide the team to the third round of the FA Vase.

Chairman Roy Brett said: “I would like to thank Steve for his services to the Rovers since the start of the 2009/10 season and we wish him all the best for the future wherever football takes him.

“Steve will always be welcome at Stanway and no doubt it’s not the last we will see of him at the Hawthorns.”
