Parry's appointment means that the club are looking for a new physiotherapist.

Parry had been in that role since being appointed by Johnny King in 1993.

Johnson added: "He has embraced the role with the level of dedication that has been typical of his work throughout his career at Tranmere.

"Les, along with Shaun Garnett and Wayne Allison, has the respect of the players and the staff at Tranmere and I firmly believe he is capable of guiding us away from the bottom of the division.

"I wish all three every success in their roles."
