Potters Bar Town manager Lee O'Leary has turned to a man with vast experience to help him guide the Scholars through another Bostik Premier Division season.

John Mackie arrives at the Pakex Stadium after a professional career that saw him play for Reading and Leyton Orient among others.

And since hanging up the boots he has been part of fairly successful times as assistant boss at both Greenwich Borough and Ashford United.
