CHIPPENHAM TOWN: Tripp to take charge at Banbury
CHIPPENHAM Town have confirmed that U18s manager Nigel Tripp will take charge of the Bluebirds' first two matches of the season.
Both Bluebirds boss Nathan Rudge and assistant manager Steve Winter are serving touchline bans during today's Calor League Premier Division curtain-raiser at Banbury United (kick-off 3pm), leaving former Melksham Town, Calne Town and Bradford Town chief Tripp to take charge of the side.
Tripp also spent the majority of his playing career with Chippenham.
Meanwhile, the Bluebirds have secured a trio of signings ahead of today's clash with Banbury.
Rudge has snapped up former Hereford United U18s midfielder Joe Tumulty, midfielder Mitch Tippins, who spent last season with Bitton, and ex-Radstock Town striker Isaac Reid.
All three are expected to be involved today.
