Burgess Hill Town fans have taken to social media to show their delighted at the appointment of SDimon Wormull as new first team head coach.

The club announced the news on twitter. Wormull, along with John Rattle, took over as interim boss when Ian Chapman took a short leave of absence before chairman Kevin Newell accepted his resignation.

Our columnist Colin Bowman tweeted: "Brilliant decision from Kevin. Congrats to Simon. Now let's all get on with it. #midsussex #proud #lookingup" while Tommy Hadfield simply tweeted: "Deserved."

George Coleman Titts was happy. He tweeted: "Love that! Simon Wormull’s barmy army march on!" and Jack Naldrett appeared to be starting a chant on twitter with 'Simon Wormull babyyyyyyy, Simon Wormull woahhhhhh'

Wormull's first game in charge will be against Kingstonian at the Green Elephants Stadium on Saturday.
