MALDON and Tiptree have pulled off a big coup after landing Peter Taylor as their new manager.

The vastly-experienced former England caretaker boss has agreed to take over at the Pitching In Isthmian League division north club.

Taylor takes over from Adam Flint, who was dismissed as Jammers boss on Monday after little more than two months in the job.

The 69-year-old boasts a wealth of experience as a manager spanning more than 35 years, with more than 800 games under his belt.


Taylor managed Leicester City in the Premier League and also took charge of the likes of Crystal Palace, Hull City and Brighton and Hove Albion.

The former Spurs, Crystal Palace and Southend United winger also managed England for one game in 2000, as caretaker.

He famously made David Beckham captain for the first time for the friendly against Italy and also had stints managing the Three Lions' under-21 and under-20 sides.

Maldon and Burnham Standard:

Taylor's last job was at National League South side Welling United, which he left in March 2022.

Maldon and Tiptree general manager Mitchell Cowling said: β€œI am delighted to welcome Peter Taylor to Maldon and Tiptree FC.

β€œHis wealth and knowledge is second to none and I am excited for everyone involved with the club to start working with him.”
