Notts County have appointed Chris Kiwomya as their permanent manager on a three-year deal.

The 43-year-old joined as development squad manager in February 2012 and was made caretaker boss after the departure of Keith Curle last month.


Notts County board "suitably impressed" by Kiwomya

In a statement, the Board of Notts County said it had been suitably impressed by Kiwomya in his position as caretaker manager, following the departure of Keith Curle.

“Chris has shown his desire and enthusiasm for the job and coupled this with a tactical astuteness that has allowed him to turn things around when they haven’t been going exactly as we would have liked."

“We think Chris deserves the chance to build on the work that he has done in the short space of time that he has been in charge of first team affairs and we are happy to confirm that he will be at the helm until the end of the current campaign.

“We will, of course, review the situation at the end of the season, but Chris now has the chance to show us exactly what he can do, in the knowledge that he has an extended spell in charge.”

– Ray Trew, Notts County Chairman
