Hearn and Roma step up

By Neil McGowan

Liam Hearn has been appointed interim Basford United manager, with Dom Roma taking over as interim coach.

The club also have also appointed Graham Rodger to the position of goalkeeping coach. Graham joins from AFC Mansfield.

Vice Chairman Tom Brookbanks takes on a new role as Director of Football.

Chairman Chris Munroe commented:
“I am delighted with these appointments.

“Liam and Dom are both highly experienced Football League and high National League level players.

“In our opinion both have all the attributes to combine a playing career with a gradual move into high level first team management. Liam Hearn has already shown excellent potential managing our Educational Academy team. Dom managed at National League North Gainsborough Trinity in 2016-17.

“So we feel the fit is good and they will command the respect of our excellent playing staff.

“Tom Brookbanks brings an absolute wealth of experience and knowledge. Myself and Tom will work closely together formulating the future development and direction of this great football Club”.

“In his new role Tom will support and mentor Liam and Dom and will most likely return initially to the dugout to assist the managers when they are actually playing.”

Basford are delighted to retain all the remaining current first team backroom staff – Michael Leslie, Wayne Miles and Cameron Nind, all are doing first class jobs and are an excellent fit for the club.

The club is well suited to move forward maintaining its strong tradition of appointments from within.
