New Soham Town Rangers boss Robbie Mason says he couldn’t think of a better club to start his managerial career.

The 30-year-old striker was named as the Greens’ new boss last night (Sunday 18) following the departures of joint-bosses Dave Theobald and Robbie Nightingale earlier in the month.

And Mason, who has found the net four times this season, has thanked the club for giving him his first shot at management.

“I would like to thank the club for giving us the opportunity,” he told the club’s official website.

“I couldn’t think of a better place to start my managerial career.

“I would also like to thank the players for being so supportive.”

Defender Lloyd Groves will come in as assistant boss, and the new managerial duo will take charge for the first time on Boxing Day, when Soham take on Bury Town (1pm).
