Kevin Dillon has been confirmed as the new manager of Aldershot Town.
The club, who had been managerless since Gary Waddock left to take over at Wycombe last month, have handed the former Reading coach a two-year contract.
Acting club Chairman John Leppard told the media: "He came with a full agenda, it was like he was giving us the interview as much as we were giving him an interview which doesn't happen very often, not in our case anyway. He knew exactly what he wanted, where he wanted to go, what he needed to do and he was just very very impressive."
Dillon also spoke of his delight at taking the job, after being without work since he left the Royals in the summer saying: "As I've said to a few people, it's not often that you get a chance to come to a club where the team are doing well.
"Jason Dodd has come in and has stabilised things, they've come through the end of that and hopefully I can take it on and improve things."
