Ex-Norwich City youth player Gusterson has made the jump from Dereham Town captain to become the caretaker-manager until the end of the season, almost certainly one of the youngest men to take the helm of a club in the league's history. Gusterson, 20, has been at Aldiss Park for nearly two years after being released by the Canaries and takes over from Rob Taylor - the man who first brought him to Dereham.

Gusterson, who works as a coach for Norwich City's Football in the Community, said playing was his “number one priority” but was willing to help the club by taking over as caretaker manager.
