Bobby Wilkinson given 5-year contract at Bracknell Town

Former Hungerford Town and Wealdstone boss Bobby Wilkinson has been handed a five year contract at the Larges Lane side, reports the Non League Paper.

Wilkinson was appointed to the hot seat this week with interim boss Mark Tallentire returning to his previous role.

Speaking to the NLP, Wilkinson said: “He’s a very ambitious chairman [Kayne Steinborn-Busse] who wants the same as me. It was a challenge I couldn’t turn down after I met him.”

The full interview is available in Sunday’s Non League Paper, available in all good newsagents.
