Dominic Genovese has been appointed as manager of relegated Conference side Kettering Town.
Genovese, previously the club's youth-team coach, took charge of first-team affairs following the dismissal of Carl Shutt at the beginning of April.
He has now been installed in the Rockingham Road hot-seat on a full-time basis and will attempt to guide Kettering back into the Conference next season.
"I am delighted Dominic has decided to accept the post," chairman Peter Mallinger told the club's website.
"There will be those who had hoped to see a well known name appointed but I am happy to appoint within the club with someone we have known for eight years.
"Dominic understands the club and the problems we still have to face.
"He knows the players inside out and who he wants to keep for next season.
"He understands what we have been lacking all season and believes he can put together a side that will challenge for the championship.
"He has built up many good contacts in the professional and semi-professional game and we have already spoken to a number of players about next season."
Delroy Gordon, Michael McKenzie, Brett Solkhon and Victor Asombang are the only players still under contract at the club.
Craig Norman has just signed a new deal which will keep him at Kettering for next season.
