    Bolton appoint Phil Parkinson as new manager


    Phil Parkinson has been appointed as the new manager of Bolton Wanderers.

    The 48-year-old, has opted to leave Bradford City to take on the role at the Macron Stadium, after signing a two-year deal at the club.

    Bolton have been seeking a new permanent manager after the departure of Neil Lennon who was sacked in March, just two months prior to the club being relegated from the Championship to League One.

    Parkinson arrives at the club after Bradford City failed to gain promotion via the League One play-offs, and the West Yorkshire club have agreed on a compensation package.

    The former ex-professional who enjoyed playing for Southampton has also had managerial spells at Hull City, Colchester United, and Charlton Athletic.

    Whilst at Colchester, Parkinson earned them promotion to the Championship in the 2006-06 season, and guided Bradford to League One with a play-off win seven years later.

    Steve Parkin has also joined Parkinson as the assistant manager.
