BROMSGROVE Sporting manager Paul Smith is on the lookout for two new first team coaches after Nick Smith and Martin Sockett departed the club.

On Sunday, the Rouslers boss announced on Twitter that both of his assistants had left Sporting Рboth on good terms.

Sockett, who lives in Bedworth and works in Northampton, left the club due to the extensive travelling to match days while fellow coach Nick wanted a year out from football.

Smith said: “It’s a real blow to lose Martin and Nick as I’ve known them for a very long time.

“I’m now on the lookout for two new coaches and anybody interested should send their CV to me.

“I need coaches who have got experience but first and foremost, they must be up for the challenge as I’m looking to progress – we’re going for the league title again.”

Anyone interested in applying for the roles can email Smith at pdscontractflooringservices@hotmail.com.
