Bognor Regis Town’s returning manager Jack Pearce says it will be a huge team effort next season.
The veteran boss returns to the dug out after the unfortunate development that newly appointed boss Sami El-Abd decided against managing the team next season.
Darin Killpartrick and Gary Charman will be working closely with the General Manager to bring success to the club and says he doesn’t see what a difficult few months means they can’t enjoy a good season.
“We’ll be looking to carry on where we left off last season,” he said, hoping for a good start in the Vanarama National League South.
“We have what we think should be a good team in place, but it’s a shame about Sami. I totally understand why he thought he couldn’t do all three jobs.

“Dabber is a great coach, as is Gary. We’ll work closely together and bounce ideas off one another.
“It’s a difficult league but we achieved well last year. We need to bring the spirit that took us up through the Ryman League playoffs.”
Pearce added: “It’s nearly ten years since I was a manager, but hopefully you don’t lose it!
“Certainly you don’t lose the passion for the game. This is a club very, very close to my heart.”
