Former striker Peschisolido goes for a Burton

Football League newcomers Burton Albion have appointed former Derby County and Birmingham City striker Paul Peschisolido as their new permanent manager.

The Canadian - married to Blues managing director Karren Brady - replaces temporary boss Roy McFarland at the Pirelli Stadium after he decided not to carry on following the club`s promotion into the Football League for the first time.

Peschisolido, 37, has been assistant manager at St Patrick`s Athletic in the League of Ireland Premier division since January and will be assisted himself by Gary Rowett, who ended his career with the Brewers.

Chairman Ben Robinson told the club's official website: "I felt initially that we were looking for a manager with Football League experience but we have been very impressed with Paul and Gary, their ambitions and plans and the way they see the job evolving at Burton Albion.

"They both hold coaching badges and have a number of strong contacts in football, with different clubs, which should mean that they will be looking to use the loan system to our advantage."

McFarland was appointed in January after Nigel Clough ended his 10-year reign with the club to join Derby, and Robinson hopes Peschisolido can have as bright a future as the previous full-time boss.

He added: "We are all very excited at the prospect of two young managers who are very keen and ambitious to start off on the managerial ladder at Burton Albion in a similar way to Nigel Clough."
