Chris Kiwomya: Appointed Notts County manager on a permanent basis
Chris Kiwomya has been confirmed as the permanent manager of Notts County after signing a three-year deal at Meadow Lane.
Kiwomya took over as caretaker manager until the end of the season, following the departure of Keith Curle, but has now been handed the role on a permanent basis.
Chairman Ray Trew said: "Chris has showed in the short time that he has been in charge of the first team that he has a great passion for the game, is tireless in his endeavours, communicates extremely well with the Board, sharing our vision.
"Anyone who has been fortunate enough to speak to him in person will have seen his enthusiasm for every detail of every performance.
"When making this appointment we were looking for someone who could realise our long-term vision for the club, someone that we could work with to bring progressive success alongside the development of young, homegrown talent from our successful youth setup.
"Chris is well respected throughout the football community for his ability to develop players, as well as spotting raw talent in youngsters, something that we are confident will help foster stronger working relationships with clubs, particularly at a higher level.
"We are not putting any immediate demands or expectations on Chris, we have said to him that the team is his to mould as he sees fit and to prepare for the new season," he added.
"That may mean a change of personnel over the summer, but everything will be done with a view towards building for the future, we are not demanding instant results, we see this as the start of a project, one that we are asking our supporters to get behind as we look to grow together as a club."
