Notts County have announced the appointment of Ian Burchnall as their new head coach.
The 38-year-old former Östersund boss takes over following the departure of Neal Ardley.
Notts owners Alexander and Christoffer Reedtz said as part of the announcement: “We are tremendously excited to welcome Ian to the role of head coach.
“As part of our ongoing extensive research, we compile detailed profiles of many different coaches and Ian stands out as an outstanding prospect.
“Despite his young age, he has tremendous experience of working in top-flight football and has been linked with several international and club roles since his departure from Östersund. We feel very lucky to have him and have every confidence that he is the right man to complement our model.
“It’s our hope that Ian will be able to continue our push for promotion this season but we understand it will take him time to fully implement our philosophy. He is a long-term appointment for this club and his performance in the role will be judged on that basis.”
