Cheddar have announced Craig Mawford as their new manager to replace Shaun Potter, who stepped down after three years in the role last month.

Former Cheesemen captain Mawford had worked under Potter as assistant manager for the last two seasons.

And he will be joined in the dugout by Mike Dangerfield, after rejoining the club from Clevedon Town to take up the role as assistant to Mawford.

Shaun Lambert, who was appointed first-team coach early in the summer, will continue in his role on the coaching staff.

“It’s been a very difficult month for the club and for the people involved,” said Mawford in a club statement.
