As from next Sunday Matt Hughes will take charge of Budleigh Salterton 1st team, with a long term plan to manage the club for the rest of this season and next.
In a club statement ‘we are delighted to welcome back Matt, he brings a wealth of experience from various leagues and was hugely popular last year with the players.
It has been a very rough summer and early season for the club and not one it deserved, we have survived thanks to John Pannell and his team on the pitch and the committee of the club off the pitch. We will get up, dust ourselves down and look forward to Matt bringing his own style of football to Greenway Lane over the coming months and it’s good to have something positive to smile about again’.
Johns last match in charge is the Walter Parsons Cup at Ilfracombe on Saturday, he then passes the baton to Matt to deal with the University at home on Wednesday 26th September 7.30 KO.
