Scunthorpe physio appointed as new manager

Scunthorpe have appointed Nigel Adkins on a permanent basis as successor to previous manager Brian Laws.

Chairman Steve Wharton placed club physio Adkins in temporary charge of first-team affairs following the recent decision of Laws and assistant Russ Wilcox to take over at Sheffield Wednesday.

A club statement read: 'The directors of Scunthorpe United are delighted to announce the appointment of Nigel Adkins as the successor to Brian Laws as Manager of Scunthorpe United.

The statement continued: 'Nigel joined Scunthorpe in 1996 as the club physiotherapist, and in recent years has taken an active role in coaching and fitness training.

'Before joining Scunthorpe he enjoyed much success with Bangor as their manager, twice winning the League of Wales, which took them into the European Cup, and also managed the League of Wales national representative team again enjoying a successful two-year term of office.

'Nigel's contract is for a minimum of one year and he will continue to be supported by Andy Crosby, Ian Baraclough and Tony Daws until the end of this season when the position of assistant manager will be reviewed.

'We are sure everyone associated with our football club will give Nigel and his management team their full support as we progress towards our aim of Championship football.'

Laws ended his 10-year spell at Glanford Park on November 6 to realise his ambition of managing at a higher level, leaving Adkins to prepare the side the FA Cup first-round clash at Cheltenham which ended 0-0.

Adkins has since steered Scunthorpe to second place in the League One table with two wins and a draw and has already declared his target for this season is a top-two finish and automatic promotion.

The only blot on his short record so far is last week's 2-0 home defeat to Wrexham in the second round of the FA Cup.
