Seasiders go for McDonald.

BLACKPOOL have hired former West Ham assistant Neil McDonald as their new manager on a rolling one-year deal. The 49-year-old succeeds Lee Clark who walked away following a chaotic campaign on and off the pitch at Bloomfield Road.

"This is a great opportunity for me - it's a massive football club in my opinion and I'm really looking forward to the challenge," said McDonald. "It's going to be difficult - wherever you go it's always difficult - but it's a challenge that I'm really up for and really excited about.

"I've got to try and put my stamp on the football club and get it back to where it was. I've got to try and stabilise it first of all after what happened last year with relegation and change people's minds to try and push the club on to pastures new."
