Lambert takes over at Town

John Lambert has been named as the new manager of Eastbourne Town.

The former Hastings and Sidley boss was appointed this evening.

He will work at the Saffrons with a management team of Jamie Podmore, Peter Heritage and Ben White.

Manager Tony Reid resigned on Friday and assistant Sammy Donnelly took charge of the team for today’s 2-2 draw at home to Worthing.

Donnelly had made it clear he was interested in the position on a permanent basis but he was advised after the game that the club had decided to appoint Lambert.

Chairman Dave Jenkins said: “I think we have a mixture of youth and experience with this management team. Long term, we believe they will be the right team to move us forward.”
