Former Canadian international striker Paul Peschisolido was appointed today as manager of Football League newcomer Burton Albion.

The much traveled 37-year-old striker, who is married to Birmingham City's managing director Karren Brady, takes over from former England defender Roy McFarland.

McFarland only had the job on a short-term basis but helped Burton reach the league for the first time in its history.

After 10 years at the club, Nigel Clough left Burton during its promotion season to join Derby County and McFarland took over in January.
