Norwich United have announced Steve Eastaugh as their new manager with John Edridge reverting to his role of assistant boss.

Eastaugh joined the Planters last season as assistant manager and helped Edridge lead the club to their second Thurlow Nunn Premier Division title in the wake of Damian Hilton's departure to Wroxham.

But ahead of United's first season in Ryman Division One North Eastaugh and Edridge have swapped roles.

A statement on the club's website said: 'Everyone connected to Norwich United wish him well as our new manager in what is expected to be a hard season ahead of us in the Ryman League North Division.

'Last season's manager John Edridge will be staying with us as assistant manager. Due to personal and work reasons John believed that he could not commit fully to the post as manager during the coming season.
