The 24-year-old was previously reserve team manager at the club and has taken over from caretaker manager Neil Farlie.

Despite his young age, Betts has been reserve team manager at the club since just after the turn of the century.

During his time in this post he established himself as a consistently good manager, the culmination of his success being when the team were treble winners of the Eastern Counties Reserve Teams League South Division, Eastern Counties Reserve Teams Cup and Suffolk Senior Cup in 2007/08.
