Torquay United have appointed former Rotherham, Bury and Scunthorpe boss Alan Knill as their new interim manager at Plainmoor.
Knill will be in charge of team affairs until the end of the season, assisted by assistant Shaun Taylor, in the absence of manager Martin Ling, who is currently away on sick leave.
Alan was suggested to us by some people in the football industry.
We had drawn up a shortlist and we checked up on Alan with people he had worked with, and they all gave him a glowing reference.
We met him at Aldershot yesterday and we are delighted he has decided to come in and help us. He comes across as a very agreeable man but there is an edge of steel in him, which is what we need.
