Harrop, who guided Braintree to promotion from the National League South following their play-off final win over Worthing earlier this month, will remain at the Rare Breed Meat Co. Stadium for the forthcoming season.

Writing on social media, Harrop said: 'Over the moon to be leading this great club in the national league ⁦‪@braintreetownfc‬⁩ , going to be a big challenge for the football club but one I look forward to embracing'.
