Lee Driver-Dickerson has been officially appointed as the new manager of Evesham United.

He takes over from Neil Hunt, who the club announced would be stepping down from the role last month.

Hunt remained in charge of the Robins until a replacement was found and will now take on the role of Head of Football at the club.

Driver-Dickerson joins the club following a three-year spell at Slimbridge, who sit one place below Evesham in the Southern League Division One South.

Slimbridge Co-Chairman Barry Gay said: "We had a very emotional meeting – Drive is not only a Manager but has become a friend, and I would like to thank him for everything he has brought to the club.

"He has done amazing work with us since taking over the reins from Freddy Ward, and built up a fantastic team spirit.

"Drive has also been a massive influence on the fact that we now have three teams, our firsts, reserves and our Under 18’s representing the club now, and helping us to build a path of progression through the sides to the first team.

"We wish him all the very best (except when they play us of course), and he will be welcome at Thornhill Park any time."

Driver-Dickerson will be assisted by Pete Haynes while Pete Sollis takes up the role of physiotherapist.
