BURNHAM have announced Mark Betts and Jon Palmer as the new joint-managers at The Gore.

Betts comes from the management team of Slough Town with bags of experience at youth and first team level, and has a great understanding of local talent.

He has been Slough Town Academy manager for over seven years and produced a number of players for their first team.

That will continue with this role and Slough first team.

Palmer will also bring a wealth of experience to this joint role with Betts.

We at Burnham would like to thank Slough chairman Steve Easterbrook and all at the club for their help and understanding with this appointment.

Blues chairman Gary Reeves said: "I speak on behalf of the board when I say that Marks and Jon's appointment as joint first-team managers is not only a positive stride forward for the club, but also an very exciting one. 

This also enhances the close links with Slough Town and forms a solid base to build on with our near neighbours.

"They both bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in the non-league enviroment, and also in the local area around the club, that will only benefit Burnham, and Mark is relishing the challenge ahead."

"We at Burnham are very excited by this appointment and Mark and Jon fully understand what we are trying to achieve.

"This will fit perfectly into the structure and vision of the club, and we are confident that we can force our way back up the Hellenic Premier Division after what has been a disappointing campaign so far.

"We are determined to put Burnham back on the football map in this area and its our aim to inspire the local community back into the club"
