SHAUN Derry is the new manager of League One side Notts County.

The 35-year-old is the surprise choice to take the helm at Meadow Lane after impressing during the interview process.

Former former Carlisle United boss Gregg Abbott will be joining Derry as his assistant.



Derry's loan deal with the Lions will be cancelled by mutual consent in conjunction with parent club QPR and the Football League.

The midfielder could take up a player-manager role with the Magpies but he will be unable to play in a competitive game until January as Millwall will still hold his registration.

Manager Steve Lomas said: "It is a good opportunity for him. Shaun's a fabulous pro, he loves the game and it's no surprise he's gone down this route.

"You've really got to want to stay in the game after your playing career – a lot of players don't – but Shaun loves it and I'm sure he will do very well."

    Great pro. Came to us at an awkward time in reality didn't he. Proven leader especially at championship level. I think he stands a decent chance of being a good boss.

    You won't see me slagging him off for the sake of it. I hope he does well.
