Simon Wormull has been named first team head coach at Burgess Hill Town.
Wormull, along with John Rattle, has been caretaker boss after Ian Chapman first took a short absence of leave before chairman Kevin Newell accepted his resignation.
The former Brighton, Crawley Town, Leewes and Eastbourne Borough player was brought in as as a coach by Chapman after Stuart Tuck left the club.
Rattle will be Wormull's number two.
Earlier in the week, club chairman Kevin Newell said: "Newell said: “I’ve had 12 applications from some very impressive and experienced managers and with respect to them I want to read them all before I make a final decision and I’ve told them all a decision will be made on Friday.
“We’ve had some very highly qualified managers who have applied. That’s a tribute to how far we have come as a football club to see the quality of the managers who want to come and join us. I’ve been very impressed.”
A club statement will follow....
