McNelly was appointed first team manager after Dan Bateman and Matt Eggleston stepped down in May, with the promotion leaving a managerial vacancy for the second string side.

Speaking to the club website, McNelly said of the appointments: “Really pleased to welcome these two young and enthusiastic lads into the fold.

“Jonny has been in and around local football for a long time, and will continue to bring our younger players through to the senior side. Jamie has impressed with his vision, and thoughts for future at Lowther Road, and certainly deserves his chance at this level following his hard work with our youth teams over the years.

“He’s already proved a great listener, as well as not being afraid to put his points of view over. You can see by just watching and listen to him, that he wants to be the best he possible can.”

Wokingham & Emmbrook’s first team under McNelly will compete in Uhlsport Hellenic League Division 1 East during 2016/17 and will be looking for an instant return to the Premier Division they were relegated from at the end of this season.

How do you think they will do?
