Arlesey Town have announced the re-appointment of Nick Ironton as first team manager.

He will be joined by ex-Blues striker Dave Kitson who went on to play at the highest level with Reading and Stoke City.

Speaking about the appointment, club chairman Manny Cohen said: “Nick comes to us with a wealth of experience, not only in Non-League football but with Arlesey Town itself.

“He was previously a successful manager at Arlesey Town, securing promotion and successful cup runs – so we’re delighted he’s agreed to come back to us.

“Nick’s return comes at a critical time for the club, not only due to our league position but also our wider plans for the club’s future.

“I am confident that Nick and his management team have the experience to take the team forward again, and will be instrumental as the whole club unites together to write the next chapter in the club’s history.”

Ironton is a former manager of Boreham Wood, Hemel Hempstead and more recently Ware FC, and his first game in charge of Arlesey will be at Burnham tomorrow evening (Tuesday).
