Kevan Karetaker at Kounty!

Kevan Karetaker at Kounty!

Notts County have confirmed that manager Hans Backe has resigned just seven weeks after signing a three-year contract at Meadow Lane and that former Clarets assistant manager, Dave Kevan has been appointed caretaker manager and will take charge of County's league game at Bournemouth next Monday.

The 57 year old Swedish coach was appointed by County's director of football Sven-Goran Eriksson as a replacement for Ian McParland but has been in charge of just nine matches since arriving at the club in late October.

Backe announced his decision to resign before training on Tuesday frustrated it would appear by not being given funds to buy new players.

The League Two side did have ambitious plans of course with their former owners,Munto Finance only buying the club in July hoping to gain promotion to the Championship side within five years. They soon lost interest though and put the club up for sale.

Notts County executive chairman Peter Trembling completed his takeover of the club, ensuring that Sven-Goran Eriksson would also stay at the club as director of football.

County are currently sixth in the table but suffered a home defeat against Accrington Stanley on Saturday triggering Backe's resignation plans.

Daven Kevan therefore takes over as caretaker manager until a new manager can be recruited. He is a former player and has been assistant manager of the club for two years since joining them in 2007. Kevan held a similar role at Burnley under Steve Cotterill and was Steve's right hand man before he left for Notts County in October 2007.

Maybe Cotterill should team up again with Kevan at County and bugger the Owls job! The two worked well together it seemed and when Kevan left we never seemed to recover after hitting those bad patches that ultimately led to Cotterill leaving by mutual consent
