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.

Johnson made 440 appearances for Luton Town from 1986-2003, scoring 10 goals. He represented the club in every division of the Football League, including the Premiership.

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.
