POTTERS Bar Town chairman Peter Waller felt his club were "lucky" to be able to appoint an experienced manager in Adam Lee at this time of the season.

The former Enfield Town and Wingate & Finchley chief was today (Friday) revealed as the man to lead the Scholars into the future after the departure of ex-boss Steve Browne.

Lee will be assisted by Mike Smee, who has left his post as youth manager at Enfield Town to join the Herts club.

Waller said: "We are lucky, at this stage of the season, to be able to take on a manager like Adam Lee.

"He has considerable managerial experience and knowledge of football at this level, knows the league, knows the players and can help us build for the future."

Waller said he was delighted with the number of candidates, which ran into double figures, and thanked them for their interest in the club.

The chairman was also pleased to welcome Smee, who had previously been a youth coach at Bar, back to the club.

"In Mike Smee I believe we have appointed a bright, young, ambitious coach with a proven record in youth development as well as being capable of bringing the best out of more experienced players," he said.

"He has gained the experience, since he was last with us."

Of his new management duo, who had worked together at Enfield Town, Waller added: "Both of them know a lot of good, young players who just want the chance to play Ryman football.

"We think the two together will make the perfect team for Potters Bar Town."

Potters Bar play away at Leyton in the Ryman League Division One North tomorrow (Saturday).
