BREAKING: Laws Confirmed As Clarets Boss

BREAKING: Laws Confirmed As Clarets Boss

Former Wednesday manager Brian Laws has been confirmed as the new manager at Premier League side Burnley today.

Laws, who departed Hillsborough almost a month ago, beat competition from Doncaster Rovers boss Sean O'Driscoll to take the top-flight challenge at Turf Moor.

The former Clarets defender has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with the club, who saw former boss Owen Coyle leave for Bolton Wanderers last week.

The appointment will come as a surprise for many football fans - Wednesdayites and Burnley fans alike.

But the Clarets are keen admirers of the former Scunthorpe United boss, having come in for Laws during his time at Hillsborough before appointing Owen Coyle.

Russ Wilcox will follow Laws to Turf Moor as his assistant manager.

Good luck Brian.

Bit harsh Danigol. I wouldn't say Brian was clueless - he did a decent job with some great results (derby double for one!) for us with no budget and forced to sell his best players. I hope he does really well with Burnley

I wish him all the best but I have to say that I think Burnley are mad.

Unbelieveable. I think they have made a big mistake but who knows - with a better team and more money it might work out? Its easy to see how he got the job - he is such a likeable bloke. Also its impossible to wish him anything other than the best. Good Luck.

"a better team with more money"? I dont know where that comes from because the reason Owen Coyle gave for him leaving was that the board at Burnley told him that there wasnt any money available for him to bring any players in !
