Former Yeovil Town masseuse Hannah Manton has been appointed as physio and masseuse of Western League Premier Division side Sherborne Town. She takes up a role within the Dorset club after leaving Somerset side Wellington following their own departure of manager Warren Patmore.
Hannah was part of the Yeovil Town backroom set-up for six years, after being brought in by Gary Johnson in 2003. But she left the club at the end of last season as the Glovers entirely wiped out their backroom staff. That resulted in the Langport-based professional to team up with Patmore at Wellington.
Despite leaving Huish Park, a number of Glovers players are still using Hannah on a freelance basis. With Hannah having also experience with the Welsh Rugby Union international side, along with Torquay United, Sherborne manager Mickey Spencer has told their official site that Manton's arrival is a big boost for him:
"This is a massive coup for the club and is an indication of the ambition of Sherborne Town to put ourselves in a position to compete at all levels. It is essential when players are injured that they are diagnosed properly and they are given an opportunity to get back as quickly as possible in order not to lose match fitness or form. Not only does Hannah have the qualifications, but her enthusiasm for sports, in particular football, was something we wanted to add to our repertoire."
Sherborne will compete in the Western League Premier Division next season after finishing one point and one place above the relegation line at the end of the 2009-10 season.
