Maurice Lowe has been appointed as the new technical director at Premier Division side Southampton Rangers.

The former BAA Wanderers coach, who replaces Marvin Belboda as the helm, will be tasked with overseeing a major overhaul of the club’s coaching structure.

Included in his duties will be coaching the senior team and revamping the junior programme.

“I’m excited by this new adventure I will be taking up at Southampton,” Lowe said.

“I believe it’s a good fit, the club have always had good athletes and it’s just a matter of getting the players on board and focusing on making themselves and the club better.

“This is part of a bigger project. Not only does it involve coaching but also sorting out the youth programme and revamping the structure so the club has a bigger role in the community.”

Lowe coached the Bermuda Hogges during the 2011 and 2012 seasons and is a former Bermuda Football Association National Academy coach.

He was also Kenny Thompson’s assistant coach at Somerset Eagles before the pair both moved to First Division BAA Wanderers.

“I would really like to thank Kenny Thompson and everyone at BAA for allowing me the chance to learn from their investment and dedication into their youth programme,” said Lowe, a former Dandy Town defender.

“They were superb in establishing their programme and the country can see how much the club has progressed over the past five years, it’s truly impressive.

“The ball is now in my court and I can’t wait to get out and start laying down the groundwork for the future of this club.”

Rangers president Gerri Saltus said he hoped ex-Bermuda skipper Lowe could take the club to new heights.

“This is huge for our community. The new executive are very focused on creating the right structure moving forward,” said Saltus.

“Maurice brings tons of knowledge and experience to Southampton Rangers.

“Our plan is to build a structured and competitive football programme and we believe that Maurice is best man for the job.”

Rangers have called a meeting at Southampton Oval on Wednesday at 6.30pm for all senior players interested in playing for the club this season.
