CONCORD Rangers have appointed former Brentwood Town boss Adam Flanagan as their new manager.

The Beach Boys have been looking for a replacement for Danny Cowley since he agreed to move to Conference National side Braintree Town last week.

And chairman Ant Smith has wasted no time in getting his man. Smith was present as Flanagan's former side Brentwoood crushed Thurrock 5-0 in the Ryman One North play-off final last Sunday.

But the former Aveley coach, who has played for Billericay Town, will now lead the Conference South side next season, after Smith chose him over a host of other names who applied for the post.
