Chester have appointed former Mansfield boss Keith Curle as their new manager.
Curle takes over the Deva Stadium hotseat vacated by Ian Rush
The 41-year-old ex-England defender has signed a one-year contract and fills the vacancy created when Ian Rush resigned at the start of the month.
Chairman Stephen Vaughan also spoke to John Hollins and Vauxhall Motors boss Owen Brown before opting for Curle.
"I never had any doubts as to my choice from the minute I met Keith. The board and I feel that his appointment will pay dividends for this club," he said.
