Bernard McNally appointed Newtown manager

Newtown have named former Northern Ireland midfielder Bernard McNally as their new manager.

The 48-year-old succeeds Darren Ryan, who left Latham Park after 17 days in charge to join Northwich Victoria as assistant manager.

McNally played for Shrewsbury Town and West Bromwich Albion and won five caps for Northern Ireland.

A member of Northern Ireland's squad at the 1986 World Cup, McNally previously managed AFC Telford and Hednesford.
