The Royal Navy Football Association have promoted from within for the appointment of their new head coach for the senior men's team.

Lieutenant Commander Chris James will take charge of the team and aim for Inter Services success in 2024.

Lt Cdr James led the Navy U23s to title triumph in their Inter Services in December and replaces Chief Petty Officer Mark Feighery, who is leaving the Navy.

The Navy's performance in the 2023 senior men's Inter Services wasn't what they were hoping for.

After a spirited 1-1 draw at home against the RAF, they were comfortably beaten in Aldershot by the Army.

Meanwhile, earlier in the year, a 2-1 win at home to the Army in Portsmouth resulted in the U23s winning the development championships under Lt Cdr James.
