CHELMSFORD CITY have announced the appointment of Dean Holdsworth as their new first-team boss.
The Clarets parted company with long-serving manager Glenn Pennyfather at the end of last season, one in which they made the play-offs but once again fell short of winning promotion.
They have now placed Holdsworth in charge at Melbourne Park and the 44-year-old has been tasked with guiding the Clarets to the Conference National.
Holdsworth, most famous for being part of Wimbledon’s Crazy Gang in the 1990s, moved into management in 2007, taking over at Redbridge.
In his first season with the Exiles he secured a tenth-place finish and in 2009/10 his County side stormed the Conference South, winning the title with seven games to spare.
The Welsh outfit began the following campaign in a similar vein and were placed in the Conference Premier play-off places when Aldershot Town came calling in January 2011.
Holdsworth headed to the Rec, where he remained until February this year when he was sacked following a run that left the Shots 20th in League Two.
