is also known locally for his work with young offenders and first aid training.

joining Milton United. It’s a great club with all the right people, focus and
energy to succeed and take the team from strength to strength.

involved at Milton. The first-team management is an extremely important part of
the club. Losing Paul Bedwell to Didcot Town just knocked us back on our heels

exciting management team that will enable us to go forward with confidence”.
