The Hawks have appointed Stuart Ritchie as their new manager.

The Blues Square Bet South side unveiled their permanent replacement for the departed Shaun Gale at a press conference at Westleigh Park this evening.

Ritchie, along with his assistant Sean New, has signed a two-year deal with the Hawks.

The duo arrive after leaving Southern League premier division side AFC Totton.

The appointment comes after Gale’s departure from the Hawks hot seat at the end of March.
