OLD­HAM Ath­letic chair­man Si­mon Cor­ney ad­mits it was an easy de­ci­sion to ap­point David Dunn as per­ma­nent man­ager.

The for­mer Black­burn Rovers midfielder, 35, only joined the Lat­ics as a player in July, but took over as care­taker boss last month fol­low­ing the de­par­ture of Dar­ren Kelly. The Lat­ics came into this week­end’s clash with Scun­thorpe United on a run of four suc­ces­sive draws un­der Dunn.

“The way he has ap­proached the role has made it im­pos­si­ble for us not to give him his chance,” Cor­ney said. “We be­lieve his am­bi­tion, skills and pos­i­tive in­flu­ence will be piv­otal to the club’s pro­gres­sion.”
