Oldham appoint Penney as manager
Thursday 30 April 2009
Oldham today unveiled former Darlington manager Dave Penney as their new manager.
Penney resigned as Darlington manager earlier today and has immediately taken up the reigns at Boundary Park after signing a two year deal.
Penney took Darlington to the League Two play-off semi-finals last season and has had to deal with a 10-point penalty after the club entered administration in February.
Managing director Simon Corney told the club's official website: "We are delighted to be able to welcome a manager of Dave's calibre to Boundary Park.
"He is a very professional and thorough person who ticked all the boxes and who has an excellent track record."
Penney replaces Joe Royle who announced his exit earlier in the week.
