Ex-Peacehaven manager Shaun Saunders has joined Sussex County League Two side Haywards Heath.

The club announced that Saunders has taken the role of first team manager with immediate effect after Ryan Andrews stepped down.

Saunders said, “After talks with the club officials, I was taken aback by the strength of the club in the way of foundations, their plans for the ground and plans for the future.

“I am happy to be part of that and can’t wait to get started.

“I see only good times ahead for the club.”

Heath chairman Mick Cottingham said: “We are delighted to have Shaun on board.

“We hope that he enjoys as much success with Heath as he did at Peacehaven.”

Peacehaven officials wished Saunders well in his new appointment.

Club chairman Brian Suckling said: “Shaun was a great servant to this club and his achievements will never be forgotten. I wish him all the best.”
