Former Manchester United striker Teddy Sheringham has been confirmed as the new manager of Sky Bet League Two club Stevenage.
Sheringham, 49, leaves his role as attacking coach at West Ham to make his first foray into management.
The former forward, who earned 51 caps for England, replaces Graham Westley, whose contract expires on May 31.
Westley's final game in charge was the play-off semi-final second-leg defeat to Southend, which they lost 4-2 on aggregate.
Michael Timlin might be sporting a headache of a different kind in the morning after firing Southend to Wembley.
The Southend midfielder, whose horrific head injury overshadowed the first leg of their Sky Bet League Two play-off semi-final against Stevenage, fittingly scored the goal which secured a 3-1 extra-time victory on Thursday night.
A surprise inclusion and wearing Petr Cech-style headgear after needing 15 stitches in a gaping wound above his eye, Timlin played the full 120 minutes and rounded off a courageous display by wrapping up a deserved victory.
The Shrimpers had finished 12 points clear of their opponents but still made hard work of booking their trip to Wembley against a dogged Boro side.
They fell behind to Tom Pett's close-range strike and, after Ryan Leonard had equalised, Barry Corr blew the chance to send Southend through when he missed a stoppage-time penalty.
Southend may be favourites to reach the League Two play-off final but striker Barry Corr is not getting fitted for his Wembley suit yet.Read the full story ›
Rail passengers due to use the East Coast main line are being urged to delay their travel after an overhead wire problem prompted huge disruption to the service at the end of the bank holiday weekend.
A spokesman for the rail provider said the problems were likely to cause further delays at the start of service tomorrow.
Network Rail engineers have been working through the night to restore the overhead power lines, however, it is currently unlikely that this work will be completed in time for the start of this morning's services. As a consequence, East Coast trains are expected to be severely restricted, and cancellations are likely throughout the day.
Customers are advised to defer travel until later in the day, or alternatively, to travel tomorrow if possible. Tickets dated for travel on Monday or Tuesday will be valid for travel on Wednesday and customers are advised to try to travel as close as possible to their original booked time.
Passengers aboard trains on the East Coast main line have complained of delays of around eight hours after severe disruptions hit the service.
Not a bad journey home, 11 hours as opposed to just the 3 it should of been. If I don't laugh about it I don't know what to do #Peterborough
Rail commuters heading into London following the bank holiday are facing severe delays on one of the UK's key train routes.
Overhead wire problems between Peterborough and Stevenage caused extensive disruption to services on the East Coast main line heading into London King's Cross yesterday and engineers worked through the night to repair the damage.
The problems have affected a number of train operators who have warned passengers the issue will continue throughout today, with severe delays and cancellations.
An articulated lorry driver got stuck down a narrow country lane after following his sat nav - forcing a road to close for two hours.
Officers from Hertfordshire Police arrived to find the vehicle wedged across a tight three-way rural junction between two high hedges in the village of Watton-at-Stone, near Stevenage, yesterday.
A specialist recovery vehicle was called to deal with the problem.
"Sat navs are amazing pieces of technology - don't always trust them," read a tweet from the force's East Hertfordshire rural police team.
