Eastbourne Borough have named Danny Bloor as their boss in a new management team.

The Vanarama National League south side have named Sergio Torres, who has been interim player-boss in recent weeks, as player/assistant manager.

Scott Chalmers-Stevens takes the role of first-team coach.

Football chairman John Bonar said: “We are very pleased indeed with these appointments. We interviewed other strong candidates but we are more than confident in our decision.

"What’s particularly important is that we have a management team, and not just a single manager. Sergio, Danny and Scott each bring different qualities, and they will work together and draw on each other’s strengths. All three of them are itching to get to work.”

Bloor needs no introduction and was recently with the club alongside Jamie Howell and then Mark McGhee and Charlie Oatway during their stint before Lee Bradbury took over in the summer.

Likewise, Torres is another well-known figure at the Priory Lane and in Sussex football.

As revealed in The Argus he was keen to take a player-coaching role rather move into management as yet.

Chalmers-Stevens originally joined as goalkeeper coach but steps up to a wider role.

The club have recently revealed cash flow problems which led to Bradbury parting company with Sports and an appeal to supporters and sponsors to help make up a budget shortfall.

Bonar added in the club statement: “As a club we have just endured some traumatic days – not quite an earthquake but certainly an earth tremor – but the response to the situation, and the way forward, are all about everyone pulling together.

"That’s exactly what we will get from Danny, Scott and Sergio. Three Wise Men? Well, it’s not long till Christmas so if they are bearing the gift of some league victories and a Trophy run, that will do nicely…!”

“The brief on the pitch is to keep us in National South, and we are convinced we can do that with quite a bit to spare. The wider brief is to re-establish the bond with supporters and get the smiles back!”
