Town chairman Craig Hughes told the Herald: “I sat down with Carl and we decided that now is the time to stengthen the coaching staff which we haven’t done since Morton [Titterton] left.

“Jason will be a good addition to the management team. He knows most of our players well and has a good knowledge of the game.”

Town have completed the signing of Studley midfielder Lei Brown. Brown scored in Sunday’s 2-0 friendly win over Bolehall Swifts and is set to make his first team debut against his old club on Wednesday night.

Kick-off against Studley at the DCS Stadium is 7.45pm.
