MARVIN Johnson has been appointed the new manager of St Neots Town Football Club.
The Luton Town legend Johnson replaces joint-managers Iain Parr and Ivan Finch at the helm, though the club says it hopes the pair will remain with St Neots.
The appointment comes after last weekend's match at Stotfold was abandoned following a mass brawl, an incident St Neots chairman Bob Bridges labelled 'appalling'.
Johnson, 39, is the third manager the club have had this season. Former Peterborough United midfielder Scott Houghton began the season in charge before resigning in September, citing personal reasons.

He became the club's under-19 manager in 2004 and remained involved with the youth team until being released in June 2007 following the arrival of Kevin Blackwell.
Johnson will be in charge of St Neots for tomorrow's (Saturday's) trip to Wellingborough Town and Tuesday's visit to Northampton Spencer.
Meanwhile, the club has said it will make no further comment on last weekend's brawl at Stotfold until any disciplinary measures are taken.
