Dennis Newall has become the first unpaid manager in senior football by taking charge of East Stirlingshire.
The Falkirk club lie bottom of Scottish Division Three with only five points from 28 games and having suffered 18 straight defeats.
Newall, formerly manager of junior sides Cumbernauld United and Lesmahagow, said: "It doesn't bother me that there is no money.
"I also have a job as a business development consultant."
Newall, who coached at senior club Albion Rovers, takes over after the resignation of former Aberdeen and Dunfermline Athletic midfielder Steve Morrison.
Morrison took charge at a time when Shire adopted a policy of paying players just £10 per week.
"It's a great challenge," said Newall.
"I have been boss of Cumbernauld and Lesmahagow and it's great to be back in control in a dressing-room."
