The club is thrilled with the appointment and can't wait for Wayne to get started.
Club Chairman Tim Morgan had the following to say on Wayne's appointment.
"After a chat and meeting with Wayne this week it was clear to me straight away that Wayne was the perfect candidate for the first team role. He has a fantastic pedigree in senior management as well as in youth football. Given the success of our youth sides over the last couple of seasons and the clubs desire to see these players progress into senior football, having someone of Wayne's experience made him the ideal person to take over and it was a very easy decision for me and the club to make.
I personally can not wait for Wayne to get started and with his appointment now gives him and the club plenty of time to prepare for the coming season. Wayne will get the full support of the club and both his and the clubs ambitions are clearly aligned and I can't wait for him to get started in the coming weeks"
The club will announce further appointments to Wayne's coaching team in the coming weeks.
