Chris Turner has been named as the new manager of League One strugglers Stockport County, reports BBC GMR.

The 46-year-old, who has been out of work since leaving Sheffield Wednesday in September, replaces former boss Sammy McIlroy, who left last month.

"I join the club at a difficult time. We need to start winning games - and to start winning them fast," said Turner.

Caretaker boss Mark Lillis will take charge of the team for Saturday's game against MK Dons.

"Survival in League One is the challenge I have accepted, and it is one that I genuinely believe to be possible.

"Looking beyond the next 25 games, however, I am joining a club that has real potential to become a vibrant, well supported, community-based club that County fans can be proud to support," added Turner.
