Hugo new Boss at Lewes

Lewes this morning announced the appointment of Hugo Langton as their new First Team manager.

Hugo replaces Darren Freeman, who left the club for a new career opportunity in mid October.

Ross Standen and Tony Coade, who have acted as caretaker managers since Darren’s departure, will now return to their coaching duties.

Speaking to the Lewes website Hugo commented:

“I’m delighted to have joined the club and would like to thank Stuart and the board for giving me this opportunity. I’ve always enjoyed coming to Lewes in the past and I’ve always been blown away by the support the team gets. I believe it’s a very special place. I know it’s been hard lately and, while there is never any quick fix, I hope over the next few games everyone will see my own stamp on the team. I’m looking forward to working with everyone.”

Hugo was most recently head coach at National League South Welling United where he left in January following the arrival of Bradley Quinton.

He was previously at Eastbourne Borough, Bromley, Thamesmead Town and Hastings United, has a large collection of UEFA coaching qualifications, is a highly regarded coach, and has worked as a scout for a number of professional clubs.

His first match in charge of the club will be at home to Hornchurch on Wednesday night, where he will attempt begin rectifying a disastrous home record which has seen the Rooks win only one home match this season.
