League One side Notts County have appointed a brand new management team this afternoon, in the wake of the sacking of Martin Allen on Saturday night. In a move that strongly suggests that matters were already in hand ahead of the Magpies 3-0 defeat at Hartlepool United, they have appointed a five man team headed up by Keith Curle.
The 48 year old has most recently been part of Neil Warnock's backroom team at Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers, and has not held a first team management position since the summer of 2007, when he had a short spell as manager of Torquay United. He has also managed Mansfield Town and Chester City.
Curle has brought in his own management team, meaning that Magpies assistant manager Carl Muggleton and first-team coach John Schofield have left the club. Both Colin Lee and Colin West are listed as new first team coaches, although given Lee was Curle's Director of Football at Torquay, and his manager as a player at Wolves, it's probably safe to say that the former will be the more senior of the pair. Also joining at Meadow Lane are Chris Kiwomya, who is given the title of Development Squad Manager (presumably a posh name for Reserve Team Manager) and Kevin Pilkington, who has joined from Luton Town, having played and coached for both County and for Mansfield, whilst working under Curle.
Curle becomes Notts County's seventh manager since October 2009, as the revolving door policy at Meadow Lane continues.
