Josh Feirn named new Blandford United manager


BLANDFORD United replaced manager Andy Savage with Josh Feirn.

Former Godolphin Atlantic manager Savage has stepped down due to additional work commitments just two days ahead of the new Dorset Premier League season.

Feirn will be assisted by Steve Smith and Ryan Park for the season, with Blandford United kicking off at Balti Sports on Saturday (3pm).

Feirn, with coach Rob Andre, led the Royals to the Dorset Senior Trophy final earlier this year before losing 5-1 to Merley.

In a social media statement, United said: “Blandford United are sad to announce that first team manager Andy Savage has had to step down due to additional work commitments.

“We thank Andy for his work during his short time and wish him the best for the future.

“We are pleased to announce that Josh Feirn will now be the manager of the first team and that he will be assisted by Steve Smith and Ryan Park.
