York City boss Nigel Worthington has praised Republic of Ireland's appointment of Martin O'Neill as manager.
The former Sunderland boss takes charge of his first game tonight in a friendly against Latvia in Dublin. Worthington - who was Northern Ireland manager from 2007 to 2011 - says O'Neill should "enjoy" his time in International football.
It's been an inconsistent start to the season for York City. The Minstermen have been unable to put together a run of form so far. But that could all change over the coming days as they prepare for back-to-back home games against Plymouth Argyle and Bristol Rovers.
Gateshead's newly appointed manager Gary Mills says it "feels right" to join the club.
The 51-year-old was named the Heed's new boss this afternoon and succeeds outgoing manager Anth Smith. Mills has been without a job since being sacked from his role at York City in March, but he says he's delighted to return to management.
He said: "It's been hurting to come out of the game and not be involved.
"I want to get my work ethic, my philosophy of how I like a football club to work, how to be successful as quick as possible here at Gateshead and I hope everybody will embrace that.
"I like what I see. It feels good, it feels right."
Striker Richard Cresswell has rejoined boyhood club York City on a permanent basis.

Cresswell began his career with the Minstermen in 1995 before moving to Sheffield Wednesday in March 1999.
In total, the forward has made 644 senior appearances and scored 142 goals for clubs including Leicester City, Preston North East, Leeds United, Stoke City and Sheffield United.
York City boss Nigel Worthington says there will be "no time for nerves" when his side face Dag & Red in their final game of the season this weekend.
The Minstermen are two points above the relegation zone in League Two, and just one point above Saturday's opponents.
