Barry Lloyd has been named as the new manager of Ryman League side Worthing.

The former Albion manager has been in charge at Woodside Road in a caretaker capacity in recent weeks but has now told directors he is keen to stay with the club on a more permanent basis.

His first home game will be the Boxing Day derby with Bognor (3pm).

This will be Lloyd's second spell as Worthing boss.

He guided the club to the leading places in the Isthmian League in the Eighties.

Lloyd said: "I feel like I'm starting out all over again. My first job is to put a side together for next season within my financial constraints."
