Carlisle United have appointed former Republic of Ireland international John Sheridan as the club's new manager.
He joins the Blues after a spell in charge of League One Fleetwood Town.
Before Fleetwood he managed clubs including Oldham Athletic and Notts County.
As a player Sheridan won the League Cup with Sheffield Wednesday in 1991 and was a member of the Republic of Ireland's World Cup squads in 1990 and 1994.
"John has a record of success, and he is respected by managers, players and fans in equal measure. He is known for getting the absolute best out of players, and has a commitment to bringing young players through.
"I know that he will bring his characteristic determination, motivation and ambition to the club. Time and time, he has shown that he has been able to deliver results in the face of stiff competition."
Carlisle United winger Nicky Adams has confirmed he is leaving the club, after playing 69 times for the Blues in the past two years.
The 31-year-old has now signed an initial one-year deal with Bury F.C.
Adams recently recovered from a cruciate knee ligament injury which has ruled him out since November.

Carlisle United manager Keith Curle says his sights are set on securing a lucrative FA Cup tie against top flight opposition.
The Blues have been drawn away to League One Gillingham in the second round of the competition.
But Curle is eying up a third round spot which could see Carlisle face Premier League opponents.
Speaking to the club website after last night's second round draw, he said: "There's a game to be won and, in this case, a place in the third round with the clubs from the top tier to aim for.
"We have nothing to fear and if we show the same attention to detail which has made us very hard to beat recently, we'll give ourselves a real chance."
The second round ties will be played between 1 and 4 December.

Carlisle United have taken three points from their away match at Colchester.
Jamie Devitt scored the only goal of the game in the 58th minute.
The 0-1 victory is United's third straight win on the road.
Carlisle United have started the season with two wins from their first seven games in League Two. You might have expected Keith Curle to be defensive, but here's what he has to say:
Carlisle United lost out to Sunderland in the second round of the EFL Cup, played at Brunton Park on Tuesday evening.
Sunderland led at half-time after Donald Love's opener who scored in the 34th minute.
In front of an 8,187 crowd United rallied in the second half and equalised in the 60th minute when Danny Grainger followed up after Robben Ruiter saved his initial penalty.
But Blues hearts were to be broken when Lynden Gooch, a USA international, scored the winner for Sunderland in the 80th minute.
United had given the championship side a fright, but ultimately Sunderland proved too strong and it is they who will be in the draw for the next round when it takes place in China tomorrow morning.
Manager Keith Curle said he was proud that Carlisle had managed to push Sunderland all the way,
"I don't like losing football matches, but if you are going to lose a cup tie that's the way to do it," he said.
