Burgess Hill Town FC are delighted to announce the appointment of Gary Mansell as the new first team manager.

Gary, who has an UEFA A-Licensed coaching qualification, takes up the position with immediate effect. He will be leading first team training tomorrow and will be in the dug-out for Saturdays game.

Gary has already been working with the first team players this season and has been very well received. He is well placed to hit the ground running.
