ALRESFORD Town have unveiled new joint managers to succeed Winchester City-bound Tim Cole and Danny Robinson at the Arlebury Park helm.

The Sydenhams Wessex League Cup winners have confirmed that Jeremy Stagg and Martin Beck are the new men in charge.

Stagg started his playing career at Saints and then moved to Andover for six years.

The midfielder then transferred to Bashley where he stayed for ten seasons, playing over 800 games at Southern League level. 

After hanging up his boots, Stagg managed his sons in Colden Common's youth team before taking them to Alresford where he managed them at under-18 and reserve level.

He then moved into Wessex first-team management at Lymington Town, working alongside Danny Barker.

Co-boss Beck also played for Bashley as a 17-year-old under Jimmy Case in 1997,

Following a spell at Winchester City, he won three promotions in five seasons at Eastleigh working under Paul Doswell, David Hughes and Jason Dodd.

He was offered a trial for Saints but got injured playing against Portsmouth Reserves and never got the chance again.

Beck moved to Lymington & New Milton in the summer of 2005, but was sidelined for months after breaking his leg in a pre-season friendly,

 He played for VT FC for two seasons when they were runners-up to Poole Town in the Wessex League but more injury woe followed for the pacy winger before he became assistant manager to Guy Butters at Winchester City.

Beck has been playing at Colden Common recently, but feels the time is right to get back into managing.

"Both bring a wealth of playing experience and contacts to their new role and Alresford Town are delighted to be able to give them a chance to make their own mark with a successful club, " said an Alresford statement.  

Stagg and Beck will start work immediately.
