Mike Derbyshire is the new manager of Diss Town.

Derbyshire, who will have David Coyle as his assistant, replaces Chris Tracey, who resigned earlier this month.

Derbyshire was manager at Great Yarmouth Town, but parted company with the Bloaters in February.

Chairman Richard Upson said: 'With immediate effect I am pleased to announce the appointment of Mike Derbyshire as Diss Town FC first team manager and David Coyle as his assistant/coach.

'The focus in the short term will be to steer the club away from its current position. Once this has been achieved the long term strategy will be to build a side capable of competing for a top six position in the Thurlow Nunn Eastern Premier Division.'
