Chelmsford City have appointed Dean Holdsworth as their new manager. 

The former Bolton, Wimbledon and Coventry player was sacked as Aldershot boss in February after finishing 20th in League Two and getting relegated from the Football League.

The Clarets dismissed Glenn Pennyfather earlier this month after missing out on promotion through the Blue Square Bet South play-offs for the third time in four seasons.

A 2-1 aggregate semi-final defeat to Salisbury was enough to end Pennyfather's four years in charge at Melbourne Stadium.

Holdsworth, 44, of Great Dunmow, previously took Newport County into the Conference Premier Division in 2010 as Champions.

He also won one England cap during his playing career which saw him make 610 league appearances, scoring 193 goals.

A press conference will be held at 11am this Saturday at the club, where Holdsworth will be introduced to the players and staff. 

Supporters will also be invited to greet with the new manager in a subsequent meeting at the ground.
