Former Norwich United boss Steve Eastaugh takes charge at Diss Town
Diss Town have appointed former Norwich United boss Steve Eastaugh as the club's new manager until the end of the season.
The position became available earlier this month after Jon Abbott took the decision to resign following a one-year stint at the helm.
A number of interested parties put their names forward for the job, but following an interview process, the club's board believe that Eastaugh is the right man to take the club forward for the remainder of 2019/20.
"We are extremely pleased to have appointed somebody like Steve," said Diss chairman Steve Flatman.
"There was a lot of interest in the job and we did hold some interviews, but we were always keen to get someone of Steve's calibre once he had got in touch."
Eastaugh took charge of Norwich United in 2016 and guided them to a club-best ninth-placed finish in the Isthmian League North Division during his first campaign. However, having been unable to keep them up the following season, he stepped down in the summer of 2018.
