Heanor Town have had a backroom shake-up after the arrival of two new coaches.

Boss Glen Clarence has brought in Steve Hamilton as his new assistant manager at the Town Ground.

Hamilton is well-known in the local non-league circuit, having previously been involved at Belper Town, Mickleover Sports, Long Eaton United, South Normanton and Borrowash Victoria.

Upon his arrival, Hamilton said: “I’m pleased and excited about getting started at Heanor.

“Once I’d sat down and spoken to Glen, I felt the buzz of the club and Glen’s passion and commitment shone through.

“It’s not a job to him, Heanor is a way of life and I was impressed with that.

“A lot of good work has gone in over the last few years both on and off the field.

“It’s a great set-up and there’s a good quality squad of players here too, which is key.

“I’m looking forward to working with them.”

Another addition is Ryan Hudson, who will combine his goalkeeping coaching role with his work at League Two side Notts County.

Hudson said: “I’m delighted to be a part of this great club.”

On the field, the club went down 2-1 at Lye Town last Saturday.

They hosted Coventry Sphinx on Wednesday, looking to avoid a fifth straight loss.
