Hartley Wintney have announced the appointment of Jamie Daltrey and John Cooke as the new managerial team for the upcoming season.

Known as 'Dalts and Cookie', they join from Knaphill, where they narrowly missed promotion to Step 4 after a play-off final loss to AFC Croydon. Step 4 is also level at which Hartley compete.

As they prepare for the upcoming season, Daltrey and Cooke are currently meeting with the existing pool of players.

This change comes after the club parted ways with former manager Danny Ackland.

He had taken over the club after the unfortunate departure of Rowan Vine.

Despite a rocky start, Ackland's tenure saw significant improvement, with the team avoiding relegation and briefly contending for play-off spots.

However, a notable decline in results from late January led the management committee to decide that a change was necessary.

The club, which finished mid-table, expressed its sincere thanks to Ackland for his efforts.

The Row's inconsistent period started after Anthony Millerick, who successfully managed the club for five years until three years ago, transitioned to the role of director of football.

During his managerial tenure, he worked alongside Dan Brownie, the current Basingstoke Town manager, achieving considerable success.

Since Millerick stepped down, the club has seen four managerial changes in the past three years.

Looking ahead, Hartley Wintney FC will compete in the Isthmian South-Central Division for the 2024-25 season.

The league is expected to be highly competitive, featuring established teams like Kingstonian, Harrow Borough, Leatherhead, and Hayes & Yeading.

Newly promoted Farnham Town, Rayners Lane, and Moneyfields (pending appeal) will also be in the mix.
