ASHFORD Town have announced the appointment of Clive Walker as manager with immediate effect.
In making the announcement, chairman Mark Jenner confirmed that John Cumberbatch would be leaving the club.
He said: "I am sorry to lose John Cumberbatch who was very loyal to the club and tried his best to achieve success in difficult circumstances.
"But the board felt a change was necessary if promotion was to be achieved in the short term.
"Clive is one of the most experienced managers in non-league football.
"The board believe they have chosen the right man to mount a real challenge for promotion next season, backed up by substantial investment in ground improvements and a realistic playing budget."
Town finished the season in 18th place in Ryman League Division 1 South.
