Following on from our previous announcement and with immediate effect, we have appointed David “Bart” Lorimer as manager of Stowmarket Town FC, with Liam Hawkins alongside as his first team coach for the rest of this season.
Bart has previously managed Bildeston Rangers to the senior cup final, and has stepped up during a tough period until the end of the season.
Liam is Stow through and through, and has been in and around the club since childhood. He has developed a lot of our youth team members over the years, whilst continuing to work within the Ipswich Academy programme.
We are happy announce that we have already had a number of players who are willing to stay and work with Bart on the future development of the club with us.
However, as you might expect, this does mean some players have departed the club. These are Scott Sloots, Jack Wilkinson, Taylor Hastings, George Bugg and Jamie Bennett. We thank every single one of them for their efforts and regret that we have had to make these difficult decision for the future of club.
