Bees appoint manager number five

Salmon is the new man in the Basildon hot seat

Basildon United moved quickly to appoint a replacement following the departure of interim manager Kris Newby, appointing Burnham Ramblers manager Alex Salmon- their fifth manager of the season.

Ramblers responded to the appointment with good grace, saying in a statement on Twitter:

'We would like to confirm that @alexsalmon17 has left the Ramblers and is going to @official_bufc . We would like to thank Alex and wish him the best of luck on his new job and thank him for his progression and bringing through a young and hungry team.'

Alex, a former Basildon player who also turned out for Enfield and Southend Manor, was delighted with his appointment. He told the club website:

"I am excited to be joining Basildon United at the start of this new project. I understand the local community and really buy into the club’s plans. It is part of my philosophy that I am a manager of a club and not just a first team.”
