The vastly experienced Dave Anderson has moved into the Northwood hot seat.
Anderson was appointed first team manager at Chestnut Avenue on Monday, taking over from Colin Payne who left the club last month.
His first match in charge will be Saturday's Ryman League Division One North clash at Great Wakering Rovers.
Anderson watched last night (Tuesday's) Ryman League Cup clash with Corinthian Casuals at Chestnut Avenue from the stands with caretaker manager Mark Barnham at the helm for the last time.
Belfast born Anderson has managed at Hendon, AFC Wimbledon and St Albans City, whom he left in January.
He had three spells as assistant manager at Harrow Borough and held similar posts at Enfield, St Albans City and Hendon.
Anderson, who has also managed at North Greenford and Southall, was a goalkeeper during his playing days.
He had youth contracts with Wolves and Sheffield United and played for Glentoran and Bangor in Northern Ireland before injury ended his career at the young age of 23.
Woods chairman Ian Barry said: "Our shortlisted four candidates for the job were all very impressive at interview, so the final decision was a tough one, but I am delighted that Dave Anderson accepted the position and I look forward to working with him.
"I must add that Mark Barnham did a superb job in the caretaker role, and made a very positive impression in his time in that job."
Anderson takes over a Northwood side that currently sit seventh in the Division One North table, just three points off the play-off positions, which the new boss will be targeting come the end of the season.
