Doncaster appoint Dickov as manager
Paul Dickov has been appointed as the man to replace Brian Flynn as manager of Doncaster Rovers.
The former Oldham manager was declared the "correct person to move Doncaster Rovers forward" by chief executive Gavin Baldwin.
Dickov left Oldham in February, six days after guiding them to an FA Cup fourth-round victory over Liverpool, due to poor league form, but after extensive discussions with the Doncaster board he is the man trusted to mastermind their survival in the Championship having won promotion this season.
The Scot's record at Oldham saw him win 43 games out of 141, however this season's cup run brought him plaudits and he is the man who had met "an 18-point criteria" to identify the best candidate.
A club statement explained: "The criteria covered a whole range of aspects of the club in addition to the football, and after completing the interview process, the board were in agreement that Paul was the best person to put their plans into action."
Doncaster secured the League One title on the last day of the season with a last-minute goal from James Coppinger against Brentford, the goal came seconds after Marcello Trotta had missed a penalty for Brentford to give Doncaster their first piece of silverware since 2004.
