Robbie Back returned to where he spent seven years as a player at the weekend when he was announced as the new manager of King’s Lynn Town Reserves FC.
Back guided Dersingham Rovers to ninth place in the Almary Green Anglian Combination Premier Division last season.
He takes over the role at the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Counties League Division One side from Jonathan Hawes and the announcement comes after a recent meeting of the club’s reserve committee and first team manager Gary Setchell.
On his new position, Back, who stepped down as Dersingham boss on Thursday, said: “I am hugely honoured to be given the job as manager of the reserve side.
“It was a very difficult decision to leave Dersingham as I have enjoyed my time there and turned them around from a bottom of the table side into one fighting it out at the top of the table.
“In the past, I have been approached by other Thurlow Nunn clubs and have turned them down.
“However, when a big job like King’s Lynn comes up you have to be interested and I really cannot wait to get started.”
Back praised the work of former boss Hawes, who stepped down from the hot seat at the end of last season.
“Joff has done a massive job at Lynn and has produced some very good young players for the club,” said Back.
“It is now my job to carry on the fantastic work he has started and to produce players who hopefully will go on and play for the first team in the seasons to come.
“He’s left me with a very talented bunch of lads here to work with.”
Young striker Jack Frohawk is expected to remain with King’s Lynn Town Reserves after turning down a move to Wisbech Town.
Lynn’s first team squad for next season has also taken a step forward with the news that full-back Jackson Ramm has agreed terms to stay.
Winger Stephen Spriggs is still considering his options.
This brings the squad numbers up to 13: Alex Street, Jackson Ramm, Ross Watson, David Bridges, Sam Mulready, Ryan Fryatt, Conor Marshall, Jacek Zielonka, Jordan Yong, Lee Stevenson, Liam Hurst, Kern Miller and Michael Clunan.
