Bristol Rovers have announced that Darrell Clarke will take over as first-team manager, with John Ward becoming the club's director of football.

Ward, who began his second spell as boss in 2012, steered the club to a mid-table finish last term but has struggled to find consistency this campaign.

Clarke became Rovers' assistant manager in the summer and the former Salisbury player-manager now faces the task of keeping the Pirates, who sit 20th in the Sky Bet League Two table, in the Football League.
