Trinity appoint Little as manager

Brian Little
Little's managerial career spans more than 800 games

Gainsborough have appointed former Aston Villa, Leicester City and Wrexham boss Brian Little as their new manager on a two-year deal.

Little, 55, succeeds Steve Charles who was dismissed by the Blue Square North club after four games of the season.

Trinity chairman Peter Swann told BBC Radio Lincolnshire: "When you think of the squad and the experience we've got, we needed a manager of that calibre.

"Once I found out there was an interest we managed to work out a deal."

Little spent his entire playing career with Aston Villa and won one full England cap as a substitute against Wales in 1975.

His managerial career also includes spells with Darlington, Wolves, West Bromwich Albion and Tranmere.

Little will begin work at the Northolme on September 7, with Trinity defender Adie Moses in caretaker charge in the interim period.
