The club would like to confirm that a new Management Team have been appointed to manage the side in the Gloucestershire County League, current Player Manager Chris Williams has agreed to step aside to concentrate on playing, allowing Trevor Richards and Jason Tarr to take over as Co -Managers and Matty King has been asked to assist in all areas on matchdays and continue his work behind the scenes with Danny Daly.

Thanks must go to Chris for the passion he has shown to take on the managing during the summer, to get the local players back together, and to create a great spirit. We all agree results not been great but the team have been competitive in most games.

We are all confident that both Trevor and Jason will bring vast experience to Southmead after many years together at Bristol Manor Farm with the U18s and Reserves more recently, and with a few signings the team can start to climb the table.
