DAN Brown will be staying as manager of Billericay Town.

Brown finished last season as interim boss.

And he will now be remaining in charge as Town aim to bounce back from being relegated from National League South.

A club statement said: "We’ve talked to Danny at length.

"Like us, he wants to re-build this team and its relationship with fans and the rest of the club.

"He is a brutally honest individual who has managed to get some great results, against the odds, each time he’s stepped in as our interim manager.

"He has fantastic knowledge of the talent coming through, the respect of players who want to stay and the contacts within the game to find ‘gems’ and loans to add to the group.

"More than anything though, he knows our club and aims, he has the work ethic and coaching ability to ensure that the team are fit and prepared for every game. "
