FORMER Cherry Mark Molesley has returned to management at Hayes & Yeading, another of his former clubs.

Midfielder Molesley began his senior career at Hayes, making 205 appearances and scoring 19 goals for the Middlesex side.

He has been without a manager’s job since May, following his exit from Gosport Borough, and will be assisted by Ritchie Hanlon, who relinquishes the manager’s hotseat in the process.

However, he returns to the Pitching In Southern League Premier South to take charge of the league’s 11th-placed side.

Speaking to Hayes’ official website, Molesley said: "It’s an honour to take on this role at the club where it all began for me.

“I am looking forward to working hard with great people to continue to improve this club both on and off the field.”

Having started his coaching career in Cherries' academy, Molesley carved out his managerial reputation at Weymouth, leading the Terras to successive promotions in 2018/19 and 2019/2020.

He left to join Southend United in 2020 before he had the chance to oversee a Weymouth game in the National League.

After leaving the Shrimpers, Molesley was appointed boss at their divisional rivals Aldershot Town before accepting a director of football role at Gosport last season.
