Richardson handed Stanley reins

Next Story

Accrington have appointed Leam Richardson as their new manager.

Richardson had been serving as caretaker boss at the Crown Ground since Paul Cook's decision to join Chesterfield last week and led Stanley to a 1-0 weekend win at Bristol Rovers, ending a four-game losing run.

The 32-year-old former Stanley defender fulfilled a similar role when John Coleman departed to Rochdale last season but takes the reins on a full-time basis from Saturday's FA Cup first-round clash at AFC Fylde.
