DANNY Scopes has been announced as the new manager of Concord Rangers.

Scopes was part of the backroom team under Sammy Moore at the Aspect Arena last season.

But, with Moore now having left the National South club, Scopes will take take control.

And chairman Ant Smith is pleased to have Scopes in charge.

"I am delighted that Danny has accepted the position," said Smith.

"He is Concord through and through and knows the club inside out.

"Having joined the former management team Danny's attention to detail was fundamental in our success last season."

Concord finished sixth in the table last season but were unable to take their place in the play-offs due to not having enough seats in their stadium.
