Lewes Football Club have announced that Simon Wormull will be in charge of the Rooks first team for the rest of the season on a caretaker basis.

The statement read: “Lewes FC have today announced that Simon Wormull will be Caretaker Manager for the rest of this season.

“Justin Skinner will continue as Assistant Manager and Paul Booth joins the coaching team as Player/Assistant Manager. Simon Wormull will also continue to oversee the club’s Youth team in conjunction with Nick Brown.

Wormull said: “Getting the opportunity to manage Lewes FC is a real privilege.

“We are in a great position in the league and in a quarter-final and semi-final of two separate cup competitions.

“It’s my objective to make sure we continue to have a successful season.’

Club Chairman, Steve Ibbitson said: “Simon has been a terrific asset to the club, both as a player and as Manager of the Under 18s this season.

“With the great experience of Justin Skinner and Paul Booth alongside him, I am confident that Worms will continue to do a great job for Lewes Football Club.”
