Gary Waddock has been appointed as the new manager of Aldershot with caretaker boss Martin Kuhl reverting to his role as first team coach.
Waddock worked in a number of coaching roles for QPR
The 45-year-old ex-Republic of Ireland international has signed a two-year deal to replace Terry Brown, who stepped down at the end of March.
Waddock had a seven-month stint in charge of QPR in 2006 after a number of coaching roles at Loftus Road.
He also played over 500 games for QPR, Luton, Millwall and Bristol Rovers.
Aldershot chairman John McGinty said: "I apologise to supporters for the delay in naming the appointment but hope that they are enthused with the announcement.
"Gary was impressive in interview and his enthusiasm for the job shone through with a desire to succeed so obvious.
"He has extensive experience in developing young players and we believe that is a vital ingredient for our future."
Aldeshot have also revealed that local firm Ezylet will become the club's new sponsors in a two-year deal.
