Totternhoe have appointed assistant boss Scott Weymouth as manager after Chris Robson left the club recently.

A statement on the club’s official Twitter page said: “We are delighted to announce that Scott Weymouth has accepted an offer to become the clubs new first team manager, stepping up from assistant, following the recent departure of Chris Robson.

“Joining him will be Jack Lauder, who will assume a player/coach role.

“We wish Scott and Jack the very best of luck, and hope they can continue the great work of the previous management regime.”

On taking the position, Weymouth himself tweeted: “Becoming the new Totts manager is a huge opportunity for me, and offers a great chance to continue my footballing education at a terrific club in surroundings I’m comfortable with.

“It may have come earlier that I could have anticipated, but I’m incredibly excited to get going.”

The hosts were trailing 2-0 at the break, before conceding six goals in the second half.
