Paul Ince lands the Notts County manager job

Will Paul Ince last the distance at Notts County?The board of League One side Notts County have confirmed that Paul Ince has been installed as the new manager of the side, replacing the sacked Craig Short who left the club much to the surprise of fans on Sunday along with assistant manager Dave Kevan after being with the club for just five months. It is understood that Ince has been offered the job on a four year deal making him the manager at County until 2014.

The former Blackburn Boss becomes the sixth manager to take charge at Meadow Lane in just over a year. Since October 2009, in addition to Short, the Magpies have been managed by Ian McParland, Hans Backe, Dave Kevan and Steve Cotterill, with Cotterill leading them to promotion from League Two before departing to Portsmouth.

Paul Ince has been out of work since he left his second spell as manager at Milton Keynes Dons in July 2010. The former Man Utd, Liverpool and Inter Milan midfielder was a year into a two year deal with the team when he chose to resign the post. Ince citied that proposed cuts in player budgets would have curtailed his ambitions for the club. County will be the fourth team Ince has managed having previously been in control of Macclesfield, MK Dons (twice) and Blackburn Rovers.

Ince has an impressive good pedigree in the lower leagues and League One could be a good platform to resurrect his career as a manager having guided MK Dons from League Two when he was in charge as well as claiming the Johnstone's Paint Trophy. He did of course look after Premiership side Blackburn Rovers but was sacked after only managing six wins in charge at Ewood Park.

Now that the Magpies look set for some stability for the rest of the season they are being quoted by Paddy Power at odds of 12/1 to gain promotion to the Championship and they are now 6/1 to be relegated back down to League Two but it could be a season of consolidation for Ince and County.

Notts County fans will be hoping Ince's attention to detail can pay dividends at the club...
