Sutton United have announced the appointment of Terry Bullivant as director of football.

Bullivant will take charge of the club’s recruitment process following their first-ever promotion to Sky Bet League Two last month.

Sutton secured the title after a 3-0 home win against Hartlepool which led to the promotion for the first time in 123 years.
