Ewen takes over at the Rotherfield following a successful spell at East Hampshire outfit Liphook, who were always challenging for honours under his leadership.

There are six new faces in the squad:

* Harry Farr, a strong ball-playing centre-half and a former Stag returning from Liphook.

Rich Scarborough is another Stags new arrival

* Josh Wycherley, a solid centre-half or central midfielder with good experience having played in Southern League and Wessex League.

* Jake Slater, a powerful forward with Wessex League experience making the switch from Liss Athletic.

* Rich Scarbourgh, a versatile attacking player with Combined Counties and Wessex League experience, his previous club being Alton Town.

* Frank Penfold, a midfield playmaker with good vision who has played for Liphook.

* Josh Bird, a goalkeeper – a great shot stopper and another former Liphook player. He scooped three player-of-the-year awards last season.

The new-look squad kick off 2019 with a home game against Oakwood - all support welcome.
