Short handed Magpies reins

05 Jun 2010 - 10:25:26

Notts County have appointed former defender Craig Short as their new manager following Steve Cotterill's recent departure.

Short, who was in charge of Hungarian giants Ferencvaros last term, has penned a three-year deal at Meadow Lane as they prepare for life in League One following their recent championship winning promotion.

He played for the Nottingham-based outfit between 1989-1992, making over 120 appearances in the process and he is delighted to be making a return.

Speaking to the club's official website, he said: "I'm a little bit shocked to be honest, having seen some of the names that have been linked with the job.

"It's still sinking in a little bit, a lot's changed since I was last at Meadow Lane, but I am delighted that the chairman is prepared to give a hungry young manager a chance and I feel that I have shown the desire to succeed here.

"If I can enjoy half as much success here as a manager as I did as a player, it's going to be a fantastic time for myself and the club."

County chairman Ray Trew added: "In our search for a new manager we have been looking for someone who had Notts County in their heart and as soon as I met Craig it was obvious that he was an ideal candidate."
