Kewell Takes Over At County

Notts County have appointed former Leeds United hero Harry Kewell, as the Australian agrees to leave his current role as manager of Crawley Town to take over at County. County are currently bottom of League Two and are not looking for a technical director to oversee Kewell's role. Notts County owner (and chairman) Alan Hardy said: "Having now worked in football for a significant period of time, I have had the opportunity to learn from other clubs what good looks like. I have therefore decided to appoint a technical director, who will set the club's overall footballing philosophy and be on hand to support and mentor the manager as required. Harry will, however, be solely responsible for our first-team squad, having the final say on transfers, tactics and team selection."
