Aylesbury FC have announced their new first team management structure which will lead the club into the 2016/17 campaign.

The Moles have shook things up following the departure of previous manager Steve Bateman, who stepped down from the role last week after two and a half years in charge.

The new management team will be headed up by Danny Gordon, a name well known to all Moles fans.

Gordon enjoyed an illustrious playing career in the non-league structure, featuring for Aylesbury United, Staines Town and Chesham, before he took up the role of manager at Premier Division side Burnham in December 2014.

However, Gordon parted company with the club last April following relegation.

He has now joined up with Aylesbury FC where he will be supported by his partner at Burnham and former Aylesbury United team-mate Gareth Risbridger.

Risbridger started his career at Marlow and then moved to Yeovil before being signed by Southend United.

He also played at Dover Athletic and Aylesbury United, only to then suffer the misfortune of a serious injury that kept him out of football for two and a half years.

He returned to action with Slough Town before starting his managerial stint at Burnham alongside Gordon, and the duo will again team up at the Moles.

The club’s new management structure also include Davis Haule, another non-league veteran, as well as Paul Bonham, who managed the FC U18s and Development side last year before joining up with Tring Athletic.

Bonham is currently studying for his coaching badges, while Dan Saunders is the final member of the team and will look after the goalkeepers.
