FOLLOWING his controversial departure from Worcester Raiders in October, former boss Chris Cornes is back in the game. 

He has taken the job at Midland Football League Premier Division's bottom side Bewdley Town and will manage with assistant Ryan Rowe.

Cornes was announced on Wednesday morning as the man tasked with trying to keep Bewdley in the MFL Premier, replacing ex-Kidderminster Harriers legend Paul 'Ocker' Davis, who has stepped down.

Phil Mullen will take on the role of general manager of the football club and coach Wayne Payton and goalkeeping coach Darren Steadman will stay on to work with Cornes and Rowe.

Bewdley are four points from safety at the foot of the MFL Premier with nine points from their 21 games so far, having won just two matches all season.

It looks a tall order for Cornes to turn things around but he has at least been given enough time in which to do so.

Much was made of Cornes' sacking at Raiders, with many believing he was forced out by those higher up at the club and was replaced by former Worcester City player Mark Owen.
