Sandy FC have confirmed Jon Bone as their new first team manager.

Jon was an England Schoolboy International who had a long career locally with Hitchin Town as well as stints with Bedford and Baldock.

Jon says “I am looking forward to building on the foundations of last season’s strong showing in the Bedfordshire Premier League.

“I have lived in, or around, Sandy for most of my life and this coupled with my love of football means I am keen to see the club progress to a level the town merits.

“I am keen to forge close relationships with local youth teams to help encourage talent into the club as I believe this is the best way to ensure long term progress whilst encouraging more support for the club.”

Jon will be assisted by the club’s vice-chairman and longstanding player, Mark Pallister.

Richard Seldon has stepped up to take on the role of Reserve Team Manager, as Tony Gregory has stepped down owing to work commitments but remains a vital member of the club’s overall team.

Ian Rushton and Mark Geers remain in charge of the newly promoted Sunday side.

Training will start on Wednesday, July 1 at 6.30pm at Bedford Road Recreation Ground and will then continue every Monday and Wednesday evening. Current, past and new players are welcome.
