Paul Ince has been named as the new manager of Notts County, succeeding Craig Short who was sacked at the weekend after less than 5-months in charge.

Notts County chairman Ray Trew, as he told the official website, has no doubts that Ince is the right man and picking him over other candidates was the right call to make: ‘Paul has a wealth of experience as a player and a solid track record as a manager in the Football League, making him the obvious choice for me when we began our search for a new manager.

‘There were a number of high-calibre applications for the position and it was encouraging to see just how attractive a proposition managing Notts County remains to some very prestigious names in the world of football management.

‘However, when we met Paul it quickly became clear that he was the ideal candidate, he’d done his homework, had some big ideas and was ready to get stuck in straightaway.’

Ince, who left MK Dons for a second time in May, has signed a 3 and a half year contract to become the Magpies’ 6th manager in a little over a year following Ian McParland, Hans Backe, Dave Kevan, Steve Cotterill and Short.
