Cook takes Accrington post

Published Add your comment

Accrington have appointed former player Paul Cook as their new manager after reaching an agreement with Sligo Rovers for his release.

A club statement from the Irish side this weekend stated Cook would be remaining with them, but reports on Monday morning suggesting the ex-Wolves, Tranmere, Burnley and Stanley midfielder was still set to succeed John Coleman at the Crown Ground have proved to be accurate.

"It's with great sadness that I leave Sligo," Cook told Accrington's official website. "But all my thoughts now are on trying to maintain the success that Accrington Stanley have enjoyed since I was here as a player."
