Bedford Town Football Club can confirm the appointment of Martin Standen as our new assistant manager.
Standen joins the Eagles as Mark Ducket's number two, having had a successful career at Bovingden and Harpenden as manager, winning 38 games out of 66 over the last two seasons. Previous to this, Martin played for Bovingdon, Welwyn Garden City, Cambridge City, Henlow, Colney Heath, Hatfield Town and Royston Town.
Speaking to www.bedfordeagles.net, manager Mark Ducket said "I'm delighted to be bringing in Martin to work alongside me at the club. He is like a brother to me, going back to our days where we car shared together at Stevenage FC. I've known him since I was 16 year old and trust him 100%. With this huge job, he is the perfect fit and the right man to be my assistant".
We'd like to welcome Martin to the Bright Management Eyrie and wish him all the best for his time with us.
