Ryman League Premier Division club Enfield Town have announced the appointment of vastly experienced George Borg as their new manager.
Borg, 55, takes over at the club with immediate effect.
The club has received applications of real quality but George’s enthusiasm and past record stood out.
Borg takes over with immediate effect and will meet the players at training on Thursday ahead of his first full game in charge of the side against Carshalton Athletic on Saturday.
Town chairman Paul Millington said: “George will need no introduction to many of us and has been successful at every club he has managed always taking them to a stronger position than when he joined.”
Borg was delighted to be appointed the new manager. He said: “It’s great to be back at Enfield. It’s a great club run by great people with fantastic supporters. I can’t wait to get started. It will be a tough job, but I’m confident we can do it.”
The vastly experienced Borg has been in charge of the likes of Barking, Chelmsford City, Chesham United, Harrow Borough, Enfield, Aldershot Town, Billericay Town, Hornchurch and Braintree Town.
After being relieved of his duties at Braintree in October 2007, Borg served as caretaker-manager of Boreham Wood for a second time in February 2008 before he was given “compassionate leave” to look after his ill brother two months later.
In the summer of 2008, he spent three months back in the USA coaching before returning to the UK and helping out his friend Steve Evans with some coaching and scouting at Crawley Town.
In June 2009, he was due to return to Middlesex to join the coaching staff at Enfield Town, but an extended work commitment in the States put paid to that appointment.
However, over four years later he has finally come to Town.
The club have thanked Bryan and Pete Hammatt for stepping in whilst the process of selecting a new manager took place.
They have served the club well over the years and leave with the club`s very best wishes.
