Hakan Hayrettin has been unveiled as Braintree Town's new permanent manager by the club.
Having led the side to two wins and a draw from four Vanarama National League games in a brief spell as caretaker boss, Hayrettin has now been handed the reins on a permanent basis.
The move to appoint the 48-year-old was announced this afternoon by chairman Lee Harding, who said he and the club's board had been impressed by the work done in a short spell to boost the team's chances of getting clear of relegation danger.
When he took over following the departure of Brad Quinton as Iron manager at the start of October, the team was rock bottom of the National League table, but their recent results under Hayrettin have brought them closer to clubs sitting outside the drop zone.
Harding said: "It is always difficult to come in in the circumstances that we found ourselves in and, on that basis, Hakan has worked very hard to turn fortunes around.
"All of a sudden we are back in touch with sides above us.
"Also the fact that we are now scoring goals and the players are working hard with smiles on their faces again shows there are lots to be positive about.
"That said, though, there is still an enormous amount of work to be done because we are not safe by any stretch of the imagination.
"But we know Hakan and have been very impressed with him and the lads working with him.
"Danny Searle has come in as his assistant and has been a breath of fresh air and we are pleased with how it has unfolded.
"We now have a nice little break of action (before the team's next game on November 17) that we can take advantage of.
"The lads have said that they see the two-week break as a mini pre-season and they will be working the players very hard."
Hayrettin had made no secret of the fact that he was hoping to take the job permanently and it is his second stint in charge of Braintree as manager after a spell at the helm in the 2016/17 season.
On that occasion, it ended with the team's relegation from the National League at the end of that campaign, but Hayrettin has already said that the situation of the squad now is very different to how it was when he took over back then.
