Pool appoint Clark

Lee Clark has returned to management having been named Blackpool's new boss just 10 days after parting ways with fellow Sky Bet Championship strugglers Birmingham.

The Seasiders confirmed that the 42-year-old had been appointed to the post on a one-year rolling contract.

"I am absolutely delighted. The main objective is to try and keep the club in the Championship and build from there. It is a big challenge because of our position in the league but it's a challenge that can be overcome.

It's one that if we achieve what we set out to achieve, which is to stay in the league, it will be a tremendous feat by the whole group. I'm very confident with the players I've got here, in what we can do going forward, that we can achieve those goals.

Ince heads to Forest

Nottingham Forest have completed the loan signing of Hull midfielder Tom Ince.

Reds boss Stuart Pearce has been in talks with the Barclays Premier League club for several days and on Thursday morning an agreement was reached for the 22-year-old winger to move to the City Ground on a deal until December 28.

Pearce is keen to breathe new life into his side's promotion push, following a seven-match winless run in the Sky Bet Championship, and Ince will go straight into the Forest squad for Saturday's trip to Huddersfield.
