Ashford have appointed Mr. Chad Beadle as the Club's first ever General Manager.

A club spokesman said "now that our President, Bob Parker is unable to get to the ground very frequently, we have had a problem in having someone at the ground through the day to receive deliveries, etc.  Chad will now be on site for much of the time and he will be heavily involved in pitch maintenance and will look to carry out all the manual tasks that often get overlooked, such as weed clearance, removal of rubbish, carpentry, dressing rooms and many more".  We are fortunate to have a man who can turn his hand to so many things, especially given his fervent support for the club.

Chad will start officially on Tuesday 15 August
