Jason Cook has been tasked with dragging Diss Town out of a summer predicament.
The Tangerines have named Cook as their new manager, replacing Paul Bugg – who took the job in May but resigned after just 42 days in charge.
Bugg had replaced Ross Potter whose departure to Wroxham saw a number of players take the same route.
Justin King has been named as Cook's assistant at the Thurlow Nunn League First Division club.
Both were at Suffolk & Ipswich League side Haughley United – they finished 10th in the Senior Division last season.
Diss Town chairman Dickie Upson said: 'We are delighted to welcome Jason and Justin to Brewers Green Lane.
'The club has been through a difficult period recently but we are confident that with these appointments we can go into the new season with optimism.
