The Non-League Football Paper - - EVO-STIK LEAGUE SOUTH, WEST & EAST -

EGHAM Town have moved quickly to re­place man­ager Chris Moore with North­wood boss Si­mon Lane mov­ing into the hot seat.

The Sarnies parted com­pany with Moore, who led the Evo-Stik South East side to nine wins from their 23 matches. That left the club in midtable and Lane comes in hav­ing taken charge of North­wood’s 2-2 draw with Egham last week­end.

Lane is vastly ex­pe­ri­enced in Non-League foot­ball hav­ing had a play­ing ca­reer – where he fea­tured for Yeovil Town, Wok­ing and Bath City – cut short by in­jury. He be­came the youngest head coach in Euro­pean top-tier foot­ball when given the op­por­tu­nity to take charge of Mal­tese side Naxxar Li­ons at the age of 31 in 1999 and had his first Non-League man­age­rial role with Berkham­sted Town in 2003.

Since then, Lane had a suc­cess­ful spell as Wind­sor & Eton boss and spent three years along­side John­son Hip­polyte at Maiden­head. He was ap­pointed North­wood boss in May last year hav­ing also en­joyed suc­cess as man­ager and di­rec­tor of foot­ball at Win­gate & Finchley.
