FOR­MER Chel­tenham Town de­fender Keith Hill has been ap­pointed man­ager of Bolton Wan­der­ers.

The ap­point­ment was con­firmed three days af­ter Foot­ball Ventures (Whites) Lim­ited com­pleted a takeover of the League One club. Bolton’s fu­ture had been in doubt prior to the deal, with ad­min­is­tra­tors warning of liq­ui­da­tion. Bot­tom of the ta­ble and on mi­nus 11 points, they suf­fered a third suc­ces­sive 5-0 league de­feat by Gilling­ham on Satur­day.

Hill re­places Jimmy Phillips, who had been in care­taker charge since Phil Parkin­son left on Au­gust 22.

Hill, now 50, joined Chel­tenham from Rochdale in 2001, but made only two starts and three sub­sti­tute ap­pear­ances. He was loaned to Wrex­ham and left in 2002 to join More­cambe. As a man­ager he has en­joyed two spells at Rochdale, ei­ther side of a stint in charge of Barns­ley.
