Stamford AFC have called in an experienced footballing head to help them escape the relegation trouble their recent run of poor results has seen them fall into.

This week Paul Holden joined the struggling Evo-Stik NPL side in newly formed role as head club coach.

Holden, who has spent time at Stamford during Graham Drury’s leadership of the team, will work under Daniels manager David Staff and assistant Rob Gould.

While Holden’s main responsibilities will be with the first team but he will also act as a coach educator for The Daniels’ player development programme.

Staff said: “Paul has a wealth of experience, knowledge and his coaching expertise will certainly help us both short and long term.

“It makes complete sense for us to get on board someone with his credentials and benefit from his involvement”

Stamford are currently in 21st position in the league having lost 2-0 away at Marine on Saturday. Four teams will go down.

Daniels Football Director Guy Walton added: “Paul has kindly agreed to a crucial role in player/coach education at the club, sharing his tactical and technical experience for collective benefit”.

Holden is a former director of Football for The Gibraltar FA, and Academy director at Crystal Palace.

More recently the former Army PT has been the Boston United assistant coach under former Daniels boss Drury in the Vanarama Football Conference North Division.
