Farnham Town have appointed Paul Johnson as their new first team manager.

Johnson joins Town after an eight-year spell at Bedfont Sports, who he led to promotion from the Combined Counties Premier Division in 2017-18.

Former Bedfont Sports assistant manager Jimmy Hibburt and coach Ricky Wellard follow Johnson to The Memorial Ground.

The new management team’s first game in charge will be Saturday’s trip to Knaphill in the Combined Counties Premier Division South.

Farnham Town chairman Paul Tanner said: “We are delighted to be able to bring a manager of Paul’s stature and record to Farnham Town.

“We’re thrilled to meet a management team so bought in to everything that we are doing at the club as it continues to grow both on and off the field.

“Together we are really excited to see how Paul and the team take things forward and we will fully support them.”
