Scott takes over as Studley's number two
10:00am Tuesday 22nd October 2013 in Sport
STUDLEY’s new assistant boss Graham Scott is set take on former club Bromsgrove Sporting in Saturday’s derby clash in the Midland Combination Premier.
Scott has stepped into fill in the gap left by former number two Andy Mason, who has taken up a scouting role with Championship club Bolton Wanderers.
With Bees boss Paul Smith on holiday for two and a half weeks, Scott will take the reins as his former club pays a visit to the Warwickshire-based outfit this weekend (3pm ko).
The ex-Alvechurch boss Scott had been joint manager at Bromsgrove for just over a season before moving on last week and leaving Adie Mander in sole charge at Sporting.
Studley boss Paul Smith said: “Graham is an old friend of mine and when Andy left I thought he would be an ideal replacement.
“He’s very experienced and will be in charge while I am on holiday.
He joked: “I will be keeping my eye on results, so if we have a couple of bad results then I will be giving him a call!”
Studley, who entertain Cradley in the Challenge Cup tonight, made it three wins in a row on Saturday as they defeated Pershore Town 3-1 thanks to goals for Andy Nicol, Reece Hewitt and returning centre back Andy Lambert.
That win lifted Studley into fourth place in the table.
Smith said: “We had a bit of a bad run but we’ve rallied and are playing some good football.
“We’ve had some excellent results against Nuneaton Griff and Southam who were high up in the league.”
Studley have also signed former Evesham midfielder James Blake last week, who made his debut against Pershore at the weekend.
Blake had been playing for Midland Alliance side Stourport Swifts.
