Maldon and Tiptree FC have announced that Peter Taylor is the new first team manager at Park Drive following this week's sacking of Adam Flint.
The appointment has been made by the club's recently appointed general manager Mitchell Cowling who is planning a revamp of the Isthmian North side on and off the pitch.
He said: "I am delighted to welcome Peter Taylor to Maldon and Tiptree FC. His wealth and knowledge is second to none and I am excited for everyone involved with the club to start working with him."
It is not the first job in non-League for 69-year-old Taylor, who managed England for one match in November 2000 following Kevin Keegan's departure and Sven-Goran Eriksson's appointment. A youthful England side lost 1-0 in Italy where Taylor gave David Beckham the England captincy.
Taylor's managerial career, after a playing history that began with Canvey Island and included 122 matches for Crystal Palace and 123 games for Spurs, began at Dartford where he spent four years. He was briefly in charge at Enfield before spending two years at Southend United. In total he has managed 17 clubs sides, including Leicester in the Premier League, and has twice been Engalnd Under 21s manager.
After being sacked by Leicester, he returned to management within two weeks to take charge at Brighton & Hove Albion and guided them to the Division Two championship but resigned from his job at the end of the season, citing a low budget and a delay to the club's new stadium.
Promotion-winning jobs followed at Hull City and Wycombe Wanderers but his fortunes were a succession of peaks and troughs with sackings following at a number of other clubs.
His last managerial post began in september last year at National League South club Welling United but he lasted only until March this year with the club battling relegation.
Taylor's first match in charge of the Jammers will be at Park Drive for this weekend's home fixture against Wroxham.
