SUTTON Town manager, Dean Short has pulled off an coup by signing former Stag’s star Tony Lormor.

The 40 year old will join the Snipes on a coaching role alongside Dean Mitchell.

Lormor started his professional career at Newcastle United in 1986, where he spent four successful seasons before moving onto Lincoln City.

After a short spell at Peterborough he spent a couple of years at Chesterfield before moving on to Preston.

But this was short lived after Mansfield Town manager Steve Parkin moved in to secure his services for the start of the 1998 season.

Lormoor said: “Shorty rang me up last week to ask if I would be interested in joining Sutton.

“I had been involved in the Stag’s School of Excellence for a few years but took last season out of football.

“I was wanting to get back into football and saw it as a good opportunity so this was perfect timing as far as I was concerned.

“I’ve known Dean for quite a while and even played along side him when I came to Sutton at the beginning of the 2003-04 season.

“I have 100 per cent respect for Dean, I’m certain he’ll do well and I can’t wait to get started pre-season”.
