SPHINX boss Stu Dutton has completed his management team for the 2016/17 Midland Premier League season with the addition of two new coaches.

Former Sky Blues trainee and Nuneaton Town goalkeeper Neil Collett is on board as goalkeeper coach, while former Rugby Town boss Martin Sockett will become Sphinx’s new assistant manager.

Speaking about his recent appointments, Dutton said: “Both Neil and Martin have vast amount of experience in non-league football.

“Neil has played at a very good level and will be a massive help to our keepers with the experience he has, not only that he has the same outlook as myself in how the game should be played.

“Martin is a great coup for me as I wanted someone with a bit of experience and know how along side me in the dug out. He has been there done that so to speak, has list of contacts as long as your arm and again has the same footballing philosophy as myself.”
