BUCKINGHAM Town have appointed Neil Griffiths as their new manager.

The Robins have been without a permanent boss since Steve Orchard left the club by mutual consent in October.

Griffiths takes over from caretaker manager Daniel Kingston, who will resume his role as Director of Football.

Griffiths, who resigned as manager of Olney Town last month, said: “As a minimum I want to establish this club back as a UCL premier league side with a group of staff and players that we can all be proud of.

”I don’t feel this is out of reach at all. I am honoured to be given the opportunity to take charge of the Robins and to restore pride and success to this club.

“It’s an exciting challenge. We need everyone in every aspect to give their all for this to work. We will be restoring pride and I will set a points target in house that we aim to achieve, every player needs targets so that they can feel a sense of achievement in their performance.

“I will make sure losing is not a feeling we accept and try my best to instil a confidence and winning mentality to what I genuinely believe is a talented group.”

Buckingham chairman Vince Hyde added: “Myself and the committee are over the moon to secure the services of an experienced UCL manager who has taken Olney to top four and six finishes in his first seasons in charge when the two previous season they finished in the bottom three and I believe that they were their best league finishes in over ten years.”
