Wayne Scott has been appointed as the new manager of Carlton Town.
Scott succeeds Les McJannet, who resigned as manager of the club last week.
The club said that one of the reasons behind Scott’s appointment was that he “will have learnt much from the club’s recent struggles” following a spell as McJannet’s assistant this season.
The new manager met with Town chairman Mick Garton, secretary Paul Shelton and committee man Mark Steggles at Stoke Lane yesterday evening to formally accept the position.
In an interview with the club website, Scott said: “I would like to take this opportunity to place on record my gratitude to Les McJannet for his support and also his recommendation to the chairman that I should follow on from his five-year tenure.
“Despite having been offered first team manager positions in the past, it never felt quite right, but this opportunity felt quite right this time.
“It will be a time of change with the management team, backroom staff and movement of players taking place. Everyone staying and joining the club will need to embrace this and hopefully also the Millers supporters”
News of Scott’s appointment was today welcomed by Carlton Town’s under-16 team manager John Kilcullen
He said: “It’s great news. I feel Wayne’s enthusiasm to see the club progress from my lads’ age group up to the academy and on to the first team is important”
