Kai Brownhill is the new manager of Peterborough League Premier Division side Moulton Harrox

An exciting new challenge awaits experienced manager Kai Brownhill after he took over the reins at Peterborough League Premier Division champions Moulton Harrox.

The former Bourne Town Reserve team boss has been named as the new first team manager at Broad Lane and takes over from club stalwart Kev Nottingham.

Brownhill has also managed at Glinton & Northborough, Oakham United, Ketton and King's Cliffe before spending the last three seasons with the Wakes.

He said: "I had three great years at Bourne Town and I was proud to leave the reserve team in a stronger position from when I started.

"I've had a short break and I feel energised and ready to start planning my pre-season number 18 which will present a new exciting challenge for me at Moulton."

Nottingham led Moulton to the title last season after returning to the helm following the appointment of Simon Black at the end of the previous campaign.

A change in work commitments forced Black to step back while still remaining involved with the club.

Nottingham returned to lead a title triumph as Moulton pipped reigning champions Uppingham Town by one point.

It was one of four trophies that the club won last season with the returning reserve side being crowned Division Four champions.

The Under 16 girls also completed a league and cup double for Moulton who will be adding an Under 10s team to their already established Under 8s for next season.

Chairman Russ Whitworth said: "It has been a long and fantastic season for our village club.

"My fellow committee members and managers have worked tirelessly to support all the teams which is no mean feat.

"The first team overcame a busy run-in with testing midweek matches but dug in and, at times, played their best football while surviving until the final whistle on other occasions.

"It was one of the best contested leagues for many a year so congratulations to everyone for giving every ounce we needed."

The reserves were reformed from the majority of the previous season's Under 18s side under the management of Marcus Holcombe.

They were involved in a three-way tussle for Division Four honours before finishing clear of the reserves side of Peterborough City and Stamford AFC after losing just one league match all season.

Whitworth added: "The reserves exceeded my expectations because the young lads were keen but it was clear they needed a blend of experience among the ranks.

"It worked and, once the self-belief was evident, there was no stopping them and I couldn't be happier for Marcus and his players."

The Under 16 girls won the South Division of the Lincolnshire League and also defeated Ropsley Colts in the final of the League Cup.
