Scunthorpe confirm the appointment of a new manager

    League Two side Scunthorpe United confirm the appointment of a new manager, four months on after sacking previously boss Paul Hurst.

    The club finish 20th in the table which was based on points-per-game, but after picking up eight wins from 30 games and took just two points since beating Oldham 2-0 on New Year’s Day, the board made the decision to get rid.

    Now they look ahead to the 2020/21 season, where they hope to drastically improve on the dismal finishing position of the campaign just gone.

    The new man to take the Iron forward has been named in former Scunthorpe, Aston Villa, Middlesbrough, Bolton, Cardiff and Crewe player Neil Cox.

    The statement read: Scunthorpe United is delighted to announce the appointment of Neil Cox as our new First Team Manager.

    The 48-year-old arrives from Notts County, where he was Assistant Manager to Neal Ardley. Hailing from the town, Cox is well known to Scunthorpe fans, having come through the ranks at the club. He made 26 appearances, scoring one goal, before a move to top-flight side Aston Villa in early 1991 for a fee of £400,000.

    The former defender, who won caps as an England Under-21 international, went on to also play at the highest level for Middlesbrough, Bolton Wanderers and Watford before ending his playing career with Cardiff City, Crewe Alexandra and Leek Town. Cox made a total of 652 senior career appearances and scored 42 goals.

    He started his coaching life with a management stint at Leek Town before a six-year spell as assistant to Neal Ardley at AFC Wimbledon. The duo then went on to manage Notts County.
