Andy Whing has signed a new two-year deal to stay on as manager of Banbury United.

The new contract will run until May 2023 and ensures Whing will lead the Puritans into the new Pitching In Southern League Premier Central campaign, which is due to start on August 14.

The former Coventry City and Oxford United player joined Banbury in May last year after an illustrious playing career which saw him make 346 appearances in the Football League.

His first season as manager of Banbury was cut short as the campaign was curtailed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but he did lead them into the first round of FA Cup where they were eventually beaten by Canvey Island.

I am proud to be part of such a fantastic club and that the board have shown their faith in me to continue as manager,” Whing said after signing the new deal.

“There is real momentum here and I can’t wait to build on the work that was cut short last season.”

Banbury chairman Phil Lines added: “We are delighted that Andy has agreed a new deal.

“He made a big impression in the short time we were able to play in 2020 and we are sure there are more good things to come with him as our manager.”
