HAYWARDS Heath Town has appointed a new manager.

Martin Dynan replaced Shaun Saunders as manager following his sacking earlier this week.

Dynan, the former Three Bridges head coach, joins the club from Isthmian South Central side South Park FC.

He has also worked as an assistant manager at Whyteleafe and Guildford City.

Dynan said the club's chairman Steve Isherwood has a “clear vision” of where he wants to take Haywards Heath Town, which matches his own ambition.

“I’ve kept an eye on the league since I left, and Haywards Heath have consistently grown and performed at the right end of the table,” he said.

“Crowds are getting bigger, and the club profile has increased. I know quite a few lads that live and play in Sussex, and they’ve always had good things to say about the club.”

He said he was pleased with his time managing South Park FC, but says he had taken them as far as he could.

“I will miss the people around the club as they’ve been brilliant to me. But I want to challenge for trophies, and I believe I will do that here,” he said.

“I’m passionate about winning and take it personally if we don’t, or if we play badly! I’m a very hands-on manager who is approachable to both the players and fans.

“I’ve got a clear way of playing and demand 100 per cent commitment from my teams. We will want to dominate possession and play attacking football. Let’s hope the faithful enjoy their football, that’s why they come to watch right?”

Dynan will take charge of training from next Tuesday.

Haywards Heath Town currently sit in fifth place in the Isthmian South East Division.
