Former Darlington midfielder Gary Innes has been appointed the new manager of ENL Second Division club Willington.

Innes, who was in charge at Bedlington last season, takes over from Rob Lee, who has decided to stand down after over five years in charge.

Secretary Geoff Siddle said; "Gary has got plenty of experience, and he seemed a natural appointment for us.

"We're sorry to see Rob go becasue he has done a great job in five years. When Rob first started, we ere at the bottom of the Wearside League and concerned about not being re-elected. He did a lot for us in five years."

Innes' first game in charge will be at home to Alnwick on Saturday.
