JOHN Pyatt is back as manager of Sydenhams Premier Division club Lymington Town.

Pyatt, who led Town to Wessex League Cup success in 2006/07, has since been manager of Brockenhurst and, more recently, co-boss of Bashley.

He will be joined at Southampton Road by Nick Jones (assistant manager), Warren Kenna (player/coach) and ex-Christchurch No2 Bob Sullivan.

Lymington were on course for a top-ten finish last season, but fell away to 14th after ex-Portsmouth midfielder Stuart Doling stepped down as manager in March.

Meanwhile, another SWL Premier club, Whitchurch United, are in the hunt for a new first-team boss. Jim Macey has stepped down for personal reasons after four years in charge.
