St Neots Town have announced the appointment of joint managers for next season.
Interim boss Andy Davies will work alongside Robbie O’Keefe at the Saints helm.
Davies took stand-in charge following the resignation of David Batch in January and ensured St Neots retained their Southern League Premier Division status.
New arrival O’Keefe also works as the academy manager at League Two club Stevenage – a role he will continue to hold.
O’Keefe is no stranger to the non-league game having managed at Hitchin in the past.
St Neots director of football Iain Parr said: “We are very much looking forward to working with Andy and Robbie.
“Our remit was simple – to put together a management team that has experience at this level and will also help us to achieve our long-term ambition of recruiting and developing the very best talent.
