Ashton United have announced the appointment of Will Haining and Jody Banim as joint managers.

Following the departure of Paul Phillips and Steve Halford to Stalybridge Celtic, the duo have overseen a victory and a draw since taking the reigns at Hurst Cross.

Haining and Banim took control of their first game in charge of the Robins at Stafford Rangers ten days ago.

Ashton won the game 3-1, and followed that up at the weekend with a 2-2 draw at Hednesford Town.

Following the announcement, Ashton Chairman Terry Hollis said: “The playing squad and fans have responded extremely positively to the efforts of Will and Jody who, in turn, have conducted themselves in a very professional and pragmatic way, bringing stability to the club very quickly.

“This presented the Board with a simple, ‘if it ‘ain’t broke, why try to fix it?’ decision. We will now look to support our Management Team in every way that we can, as we look to build upon the foundations laid over the past three years.”

The first team are back in Evo-Stik Premier action this evening, at home, to Buxton.
