Potters Bar Town have made changes behind the scenes as they prepare for the new season in the Bostik Premier Division.

James Duncan will manage the side while former supremo Steve Ringrose will take a more hands-off, overview as director of football.

The moves shouldn’t make too much of a difference as this was the unofficial structure last season as the Scholars gained automatic promotion to step three for the first time in their history.

Other roles behind the Bar include Mick Johnson as assistant manager and David Murphy as first-team coach.

Star striker Michael Murray will also take a more active role in the coaching set-up but he is by no means hanging the boots up just yet, and will combine his new coaching position with playing.

A club spokesman said: “We have a wealth of experience available for a club preparing to go places.”

The Scholars have also confirmed their pre-season line-up.

They start with the squad split in two for games at Broadfields and Southall on Saturday, July 7, before travelling to Uxbridge on July 10.

They make the short hop over the M25 to play Hadley on Friday, July 13 and the away games continue with a visit to Edgware Town on July 18.

Harrow Borough provide the opposition on July 21 before the Pakex opens its doors for the first time this season against Chesham United on Tuesday, July 24.

Two more home games follow, against Beaconsfield on July 28 and Watford U23 on July 31 before their final pre-season encounter takes them to another step three outfit in the shape of Biggleswade Town on August 4.

The Bostik league season begins a week later.
