Former Billericay Town manager Jody Brown has been named as assistant manager to caretaker Yeovil Town boss Charlie Lee.
On Easter Monday Brown was sacked by the National League South bottom club, where he worked with Lee who was on the playing staff at Billericay earlier this season.
In his matchday programme notes for today’s home match with Stockport County, Lee said: “You may notice a new face on the sidelines with me this afternoon, this is Jody Brown who I worked with earlier this season at Billericay Town.
“As you can imagine I’ve become stretched due to the limited members of staff, so having Jody alongside me, someone who has previously been an assistant manager at this level with Dagenham, will be an invaluable boost to our coaching capabilities.”
Brown was appointed Billericay manager in October following the sacking of Kevin Watson, the manager who signed Charlie Lee after his departure Yeovil at the end of last season, who managed just one point from his first six games in charge.
He led them to an Essex Senior Cup final victory last week but could not get them off the bottom of the National League South table and, with four games remaining, he was sacked following a 2-1 defeat to Chelmsford City.
Lee has been operating without an assistant since he stepped up to the Huish Park hot seat following Darren Sarll’s exit to join National League rivals Woking last month. Injured midfielder Josh Staunton has donned his coaching kit to support Lee on the touchline since his appointment.
Welcome to Huish Park, Jody.
