Darren Sarll has been named as Stevenage’s first team manager for next season.

Sarll has been the club’s caretaker boss for the past three months since Boro sacked Teddy Sheringham at the beginning of February and, following Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Accrington Stanley, led the side to 18th in the final League Two standings.

The 33-year-old was the club’s academy manager until this season when he took up a first team coaching role under Sheringham.

However, following the former Manchester United and England striker’s departure from the club Sarll was put in temporary charge.

The club then decided last week to hand Sarll the job full time-time, but waited until after the final game of the season to make the announcement.

Sarll will once again be supported by Glenn Roeder next year.

Former West Ham United and Newcastle United boss Roeder was appointed as a managerial adviser to Sarll mid-March, and since the two started working together Stevenage have lost just once in nine matches.
