In a statement on AFC’s website, chairman Phil Turner said: “The club are pleased to announce Jamie Godbold and his assistant Andy Reynolds have been appointed to take charge of the first team, Jamie and Andy come to the club highly recommended by Danny Laws

“Danny Laws has been appointed as director of football and youth development.

“His responsibilities will include working with the newly-appointed first team management team and directing and developing the under-21 and under-18 teams.

“In addition, Danny will be taking an active role in assisting with the operation of our youth development and will lead our new Football Academy being launched this year.

“Jamie was on Stoke City’s books for six years before moving on to become a well-respected member of Lowestoft Town’s team.

“He holds a UEFA A coaching licence and has worked closely with Danny Laws in the past.

“He is also the FA regional coach development manager for our region.
