Tonbridge Angels have confirmed the appointment of Steve McKimm as their new first-team manager.
McKimm takes over from Tommy Warrilow, who left at the end of the season following he club's relegation from Skrill South to the Ryman League, Premier Division.
McKimm has most recently been coach at Skrill South Sutton United, while his playing career took in a successful spell at Gravesend & Northfleet as well as periods at Margate, Kingstonian and Farnborough.
"I can't wait to get started on the job," said McKimm. "Clearly there has been some disappointment about the way last season ended for the Angels and I want to raise spirits and the tempo around the place.
"Tonbridge Angels has always struck me as a well run club with a responsible Board, a great backroom staff and loyal supporters, and I think together we can all restore some pride to this club and put smiles back on people's faces."
Tonbridge chairman Steve Churcher said: "We are delighted to have obtained the services of Steve.
"Although there was a strong field of candidates he was absolutely the stand out applicant with his approach and ideas for the club going forward.
"Steve will work very closely with our Reserve and Youth team managers as we look to develop our pool of home grown talent to strengthen the 1st team."
McKimm's assistant manager will be Barry Moore who was first team coach at Bromley.
