Former Coventry City assistant boss and goalkeeper Tim Flowers has been appointed manager of Macclesfield Town.
The 53-year-old has landed the role following the departure of previous head coach Mark Kennedy.
Kennedy left the Silkmen after they were relegated from League Two to the National League.
Macclesfield would have stayed up had it not been for a points deduction following a charge of misconduct related to the payment of player wages.
Now Flowers has taken up the challenge of leading the team, joining on an initial one-year contract.
The former England international will be assisted by Gary Whild and Danny Whitaker.
Kenilworth-born Flowers was most recently manager of Solihull Moors, having left that role in January.
As a player, he had a spell on loan at Coventry in 2002 in a career that also included stints with Wolverhampton Wanderers, Southampton, Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City.
After hanging up his gloves, he went on to be Sky Blues assistant manager during Iain Dowie’s tenure as boss between 2007 and 2008.
