Foxdale AFC have appointed a new first team manager.

Antony Corkill will lead the second division outfit into the new season, taking over from John Roberts who stood down at a committee meeting last month.

In a post on social media, the club described Mr Corkill, or 'Twonna' as "consistently one of the club's strongest players for a number of seasons."

Mark Smith has been appointed as assistant manager, taking over from Andrew Mackie, and Graeme Sears will be the coach.

Foxdale AFC said: "the trio bring with them a wealth of knowledge, experience and an understanding and love for the club that will hopefully drive the club forward for many years to come."

John Roberts and Andrew Mackie were thanked for their "huge contributions over the past few years."
