CHARLIE Pierson will be piloting Ringwood Town’s Sydenhams Division One campaign next season.

Town’s stalwart central defender and skipper has been appointed first-team boss and will be assisted on the management team by new arrival Jordan Hiscock, who has enjoyed a prolific role with Richmond Park Con FC.

Hiscock’s stay at Richmond Park culminated with record-breaking success in four competitions last term – the Bournemouth FA Saturday Hayward League title, the MA Hart (Pickford) Cup, the Poole Bay Challenge Cup and the Hampshire FA Intermediate Cup.

Chairman Phil King said: “This is another step in the right direction for the club.

“Charlie is Ringwood Town through and through and Jordan is a very welcome addition given the success he’s had with Richmond Park FC.”
