Witham Town have named former Burnham Ramblers boss Garry Kimble as their new manager.

The 44-year-old was appointed as Town's new boss last night, following a unanimous decision to appoint him as Danny Greaves' successor.

He will officially take control of the team at the end of the season, with Adam Flint and Rob Pithers remaining in charge for the club's remaining games in the Essex Senior League.

Chairman Tony Last said: "Garry is very keen.

"It wasn't an easy task and we had some very good candidates but his enthusiasm was a breath of fresh air.

"He loves his football and it came across that he really wanted the job."
