James Brattan has been named as the new manager of Peterborough League side Ketton
Experienced boss James Brattan has been named as the new manager of Peterborough League side Ketton.
Brattan takes over the reigns at Pit Lane following the resignation last month of Darren Moody from the Premier Division club.
He was in charge of fellow Premier Division side ICA Sports last season and has had a brief spell as manager of Oakham United.
Brattan has also managed Huntingdon Town and been assistant boss at Pinchbeck United in the United Counties League.
He said: "I am delighted to be joining Ketton.
"It has some of the best facilities in the league and, having met with the club, it shares my ambition and drive.
"The hard work starts now as we have a lot to do but I cannot wait to get started."
Ketton chairman Andy Gray feels the appointment of Brattan is a 'great fit' for the Rutland club.
Gray commented: "Once we started talking to Bratts it was clear that he would be a great fit for the club and the way we want to progress in the coming seasons.
"It has been a very tough couple of years and a difficult summer but it certainly feels like we are turning a corner with this appointment.
"I am sure everyone associated with the club will join me in welcoming James and wish him all the best."
Ketton's season in the Premier Division will begin on Saturday, August 14.
