Changes in the management structure at Deal Town
Go Travel Kent League club Deal Town's new first team manager, Derek Hares, is still waiting to hear from last season's first and reserve team squads with regards to signing for the club, reports www.dealtownfc.freeserve.co.uk

But, Andrew Biggington has been formally named as Hares number two at the Charles Ground next season.  He brings a wealth of experience to the club's backroom staff having had spells at Ramsgate, Canterbury City, Hythe Town and Deal Town.

Deal Town have announced the appointment of Gary Jackson as reserve team manager.  Jackson helped Maidstone United's Danny Ward with their Floodlight League side last season as his assistant, and had playing spells at Ramsgate and Deal Town reserves.  Jackson has named former Deal Town committee member Sean Bennett as his number two.  Jackson hopes to add a few new faces to the reserve side that won the treble last season, as well as supply new manager Derek Hares with backup for the first team.  Jackson said: "I'm looking forward to working alongside Derek, as well as trying to add to the success of the club.
