WEM Town Football Club have unveiled their new manager for the forthcoming Salop Leisure League season.

Richard Hughes takes the helm after departing MMP-NL Mid Wales League East club Churchstoke last week.

Hughes said: "I'd like to wish Churchstoke all the best for the upcoming season in Mid Wales East division. I have decided to move on and take on the managerial role at Wem."

Wem will be competing in the Salop League next season after switching from the West Midlands League.

A club statement read: "Wem Town FC are happy to announce Richard Hughes as the new manager of the first team.

"Richard is looking forward to the task of leading the team in the Shropshire Premier League."

Hughes succeeds Josh Gough at the helm.

"We want to thank him for his tireless work over many years and wish JG all the best for the future," added the club statement.
