FORMER Forest Green striker Lee Hughes has been named player-manager at Evo-Stik South Premier Division Central side Halesowen Town.

The 42-year-old scored 15 goals for Rovers during a 12 month spell between 2014 and 2015.

Hughes has replaced Rob Smith and Harry Chambers who parted company with the club this morning.

The former West Bromwich Albion forward had a similar role at Worcester City last season.

His first game in charge will be against Hitchin Town this weekend.
