Uganda: Star Trail - Nation in the News for a Good Reason

Notts County has appointed Chris Kiwomya as manager for the remainder of the season.

Kiwomya has been caretaker manager of the Npower League One club for four matches since Keith Curle was sacked at the beginning of February, following a 2-1 defeat at then-bottom club Hartlepool.

After losing his first game away at Stevenage, County is unbeaten in three outings. The former Arsenal and Ipswich striker gained his first win last night as the Magpies came from behind to beat Bury 4-1 at Meadow Lane. The Notts County board has been impressed with Kiwomya's work and has put their faith in him for the club's remaining 13 matches.

"Chris has shown his desire and enthusiasm for the job and coupled this with a tactical astuteness that has allowed him to turn things around when they haven't been going exactly as we would have liked," Chairman Ray Trew.
