IT’S ALL change for the Sumas as the club starts a search for a new manager ahead of their first season of Step 5 football.

Wokingham and Emmbrook FC announced earlier this evening that, after three successful years, its joint team managers of Dan Bateman and Matt Eggleston, are stepping down.

This is due to work and family commitments.

However, the duo are committed to the Lowther Road-based club and will continue to help out in other roles.
