SHOLING have announced Mark Stupple as their new reserve team manager.

Stupple departs AFC Totton after three years in different roles at the club, including time as vice-chairman and commercial manager.

The former Pace Youth coach was also the Stags’ reserve manager but has now exited the Testwood Stadium to take up his new role with the Boatmen.

He’ll join the newly formed managerial set-up at the Silverlake Arena, working alongside co-managers Mick Marsh and Dave Fear.

Fear, who has stepped up from the reserves job, said: “We’ve brought Mark in because he’s got the Sholing philosophy.

“He’s got first-hand experience developing youngsters and has also good contacts to bring in good young players.”
