Brentford have appointed Leroy Rosenior as their new manager in succession to Martin Allen, who resigned last month.

Rosenior, who had been working as first team coach at Shrewsbury, left Torquay by mutual consent in February after nearly four years in charge.

"I am delighted to be here," he said. "This club has gone through some big changes and I'm determined to help them make the jump to the Championship."

Meanwhile coach Adrian Whitbread and physio Damien Doyle have left the club.

Brentford chairman Greg Dyke said he was delighted with the appointment.

"We had a long list of possibles and interviewed a number of them and we were unanimous in choosing Leroy," he said.

"We were impressed by his knowledge of the game, his enthusiasm for attractive football and his overall attitude.

"We were keen to appoint another young manager on his way up and asked several experienced people about Leroy and got nothing back but praise for a bright, young manager.

"With pre-season training only a few weeks away we were keen to appoint a replacement for Martin Allen quickly and are delighted that we have found such a high calibre manager."
