Norwich United have named Garth Good and Dan Goffin as joint first team managers as they attempt to return to Step 4 football at the first attempt.

They take over at Plantation Park following the shock resignation of Steve Eastaugh, which was announced to the players after the new season’s opening training session last Saturday.

The Planters – relegated from the Bostik League North Division – moved quickly, with the first friendly next Tuesday, away at Caister (6.45pm).

Both Good and Goffin have extensive coaching and management experience, including working with the Norwich City Academy, and impressed United with a passionate and enthusiastic approach to the sport.

After yesterday’s announcement, Goffin tweeted: “Delighted to be given the opportunity to become joint first team manager of @NorwichUtd. Excited to get started and back working alongside Garth Good.”

They will start their new roles immediately.
