Rochdale have confirmed the appointment of John Coleman as their new manager.

Coleman agreed terms on Monday to end a 13-year spell in charge of Accrington and a compensation settlement between the clubs has cleared the way for him to succeed Steve Eyre at Spotland.

Assistant Jimmy Bell will join Coleman and the duo's first game in charge will be against local rivals Bury on Saturday.
